Yes, Virginia, it is another pair of gloves.
Just finished another pair of the wonderful custom fit garter stitch gloves - this time truly a custom fit, for a young friend of a friend with some specific fit issues. They're knit of Mini Mochi, a sock yarn with long color repeats. These gloves (in a child's size) took only one ball.
Now I've started another pair of gloves, to replace some my son lost (to give him credit, he didn't lose them for 2 years). Socks wear out, gloves and mittens get lost. At this house, mothers knit.
Hope all of my U.S. readers had a good thanksgiving weekend -- full of things to be thankful for, and the grace to be grateful. We have snow on the ground, and unseasonably cold weather, so hand-knits are especially useful right now -- one more thing to be thankful for.
