Perfect is Over Rated

I'm having too much fun with this project to let the little things get to me:



This is the Floral Fair Isle Gloves worked in Knit Picks Pallet. I started it late Sunday night and by the time Monday knit night rolled around I was at the thumb gusset. And that's where I went wrong. I should never have tried to work on this project while gabbing it up with the gals.

But it's okay. I'm having fun working this. The colors are a bit bright, but it's a good use for Pallet. And I bet I will appreciate a colorful pair of gloves on a gray day in February.

If you missed the error I was talking about, it's the fact that the purple triangles on either side of the white and black line aren't lined up. It's because I added 8 stitches to account for my large sized hand. The glove fits, but the mis-match is kind of annoying, though not annoying enough for me to rip it out. I'm no perfectionist!

  1. I thought that was intentional until I read the text. I like the sense of movement, frankly. Fun gloves! --syl

    These are gorgeous and really, I had no idea that they were supposed to line up. Now just do the same thing on the other side: gloves ala Laurie!

    Monday was a hell o'lot of fun!

  3. Those gloves rock! I think the offset pyramids look like rick-rack, which is perfectly kosher. :)

    What mistake?!!. the triangles do line up to form dominoes leaning over. I like it. It forms an interesting transition from the ripples to the flowers.

  7. Those gloves are stunning! And the mistake doesn't look like a mistake to me -- it looks like a design feature. Can't wait to see the finished objects!
