I also decided to line up another project so I'd have something to work on right after the bag, but as it turns out I have everything I need for it, so I'll start on it tonight. "It" is a pair of gloves, and I'm pretty psyched because I've never knit gloves before and I've always wanted to. I've also joined my first KAL, the Glove Knitting KAL which seems like a very friendly, low key kind of site. There's no time limit which is great - I sure won't be needing them anytime soon!
I chose to do the gloves in Louet Gems Merino fingering weight yarn. I really like the fact that it's machine washable, and it's even supposed to be machine dryable. The color choices were great too. I'm a sucker for teals, aquas, purples, and blues.I have to admit I find the guage somewhat daunting. I've been knitting with size 10 needles or larger for most of my felting lately and on these gloves I'll be using size 1. That's one, single digit, no numbers after it!! I hope I know what I'm doing!
