Avatar gloves


I started these gloves a few days ago. The yarn is a yummy variegated 100% lambswool - Rowan Colourscape Chunky. I initially bought this yarn to make a hat for Adam ; blue is his favourite colour and it was really cold this Christmas that he really needed a hat. But he wouldn't even give the yarn one look when I asked him if he would like a hat made from this colour. He hates hats. My husband wanted a pair of gloves to play snow with so I made these gloves with the yarn instead. But because the yarn colour is variegated (i.e. the colour changes along the yarn in the skein), the gloves doesn't match! Somehow I ended up with this pair of really unique gloves full of brilliant colours and character. And my husband is calling it Avatar, because the colours remind him of the Avatar movie, and coincidentally, we were watching Avatar on tv while I was knitting this.

My husband is an iphone user so I made the gloves with a slit in the index finger so he can play on his phone while wearing it...I don't know if my husband really like the colours...probably too colourful for him..and also, as luck would have it, temperature increased dramatically in the past couple of days that there are no more snow and he doesn't really need full gloves anymore....oh well...at least i enjoyed knitting them..hehe..and with the crazy weather, you never know when it's going to reach freezing temperatures again...
