Glove & Mitten Inspiration

My friend Maria in Germany knit these gorgeous gloves and gave them to me when I was visiting. I just love them. I have often pondered over this designer’s amazing glove patterns, but haven’t had the gumption to give them a try. This is Eve, knit up in Wollmeise Pure in the Sabrina colorway (which happens to be one of my favorite Wollmeise colors.) The beads are worked in to both sides of the gloves.

Looking at all of these pictures has me wanting to make some mittens or mitts again. Gloves have a lot of fingers to knit, which holds me back a little. Although I did hear a good tip – poke each finger inside out (back into the palm of the glove) after knitting it, so it’s not hanging around and getting in the way when you’re working on the other fingers. That sounded like a good plan.

Do you have a favorite glove/mitten/mitt pattern? If so, share it in the comments so we can check it out, too!
