FO: Sideways knitted gloves

This is a pattern I came up with the other weekend. The original plan was to try and do it without breaking the yarn, but that makes the thumb hole a bit tight (that one is not pictured, might frog it yet). They looked ok but I added some crochet shells to counteract the curl. Next pair'll probably have ribbing instead. A great use for leftover sock yarns. The thumb is done with short-rowing. This yarn is very loud, I love it!

These are so pretty I think I might keep them for myself!

In other news, I bought a big cross-stitch sampler kit to work on. Yes, I'm contemplating going over to the dark side of needlepoint... :)

Current mood: thoughtful
