I actually wanted to start making gloves but, erm, I seem to have diverted my attentions to something I don't need at the moment. I would need gloves. I got this pink Schachenmayr wool very cheaply and because I alway wanted to make the Quick Work with Thick Wool jumper in Susan Crawford's A Stitch in Time Vol. 2. I started it yesterday. It is really quick work. Almost half way with the body just about finished. I knit this in the round, because I like the wrong side too with its raised purl stitch columns.
