Owl Fingerless Gloves

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Surly Sheep's Cable Owl Gloves Link to website or photo http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cable-owl-gloves What are you most proud of? That I found discrepancies in the pattern for the left glove and was able to revise it myself to work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The left glove instructions as written has the thumb hole on the opposite side of the gusset (the gusset is in the correct location). It also instructs to switch back to the smaller needles whereas the right glove instructions do not say to do so. When I switched needles, the left glove turned out smaller and tighter than the right. I didn’t feel like ripping back a third time to use the size 7’s for the rest of the left glove, so I left it as is and fixed the gusset instructions so that the owl’s head wouldn’t be deformed. I made a second left glove following the instructions as they are written for the right glove and came out with a better match for the pair.
