Gloves, or glove I guess

I knit myself a glove! This has been one of those projects that just seemed way too hard to tackle. All those fingers, and worse yet the space in between them...I just wasn't sure I was ready for them. But I don't really like to wear mittens. I end up taking them off too often - to find my keys, to buckle my kid in the car, etc. So I determined it was time to make gloves. And honestly it wasn't that hard. They were rather time consuming knitting all those fingers in the round, but not really hard. Granted I have only made the one glove. We'll see how it goes, I might have a new appreciation for mittens!

A couple details...
Yarn: Reynolds Cricket, a rayon/wool blend that is really soft, knit on size 3 needles.
Book: Knitting New Mittens and Gloves which has a couple really cute patterns including some mittens I'm looking forward to making! :)

Your first glove looks fantastic, Roxanne! I've been a bit timid to try knitting gloves, but you make it look easy. I must give it a try too.
