A fast and easy knit
I finished a pair of half gloves yesterday while having some in between-time at work. The first one i made while sick earlier this week, and now the second one yesterday. They are just knitted squares sewn togeather, a bit wonky since i didnt block them, i think they will turn out to big if i do (didnt swatch, who makes a swatch while sick? And i never get those damn things to add upp with the finished knit anyway..).
A guest saw me knitting and laughed about the fact that i described them as a pair of half gloves to wear ontop of my spring gloves. Apparently, spring glovesis a funny notion for south africans.. Wouldnt want to wear these outside now though, yesterday on my way back from work it was -36. Nippy.
I knitted them with an Irish Moss Stich

Nice and easy but still a bit more action than plain stockinette.
