Now on to the gloves... Here are my finished Ringwood Gloves that are en route to my sister-in-law as we speak. Maybe it was the combination of steamy iron and drippy sweat that clued me in, but as I was blocking them, I realized the ridiculousness of sending someone gloves in this 100 degree heat. I got a little twinge of self-consciousness, but I'm pretty sure she'll be tickled to get them nonetheless. I mean, winter's coming, right? For something to enjoy in the meantime, I sent her a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks .
Pattern: Ringwood by Rebecca Blair
Yarn: Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend in Rust
Notes: Easy to follow pattern for a fairly quick knit. True to the pattern notes, the Ringwood stitch has a nice stretch to it that produces a close fitting glove. The silkiness of the silk was especially noticeable after I blocked them. I would love to make a pair of these for myself!
