What are you most proud of? I think this is a pattern that is engrossing without being frustrating. There are a lot of details here that make this pattern special: an undulating rib for the cuff that mimics the vine's undulations, symmetry so the gloves mirror each other, a rolled edge cuff that looks polished but doesn't distract from the beauty of the vine patt. And--it looks just as interesting worn inside out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't work on this while watching tv! If you're comfortable using charts, it's easier to keep track of rows. It's important to note that the stitch count for the vine pattern fluctuates from row to row.

I agree don't watch tv! I used that same pattern to make a blanket for my mom (same color, bigger yarn and needles) and it occasionally got frustrating just because I wasn't paying attention. These gloves are beautiful!
