I-Cord Gloves

I-Cord Gloves by Meg Swansen
I finally made myself some gloves.....not just any gloves.  These quick [and very fun gloves] are an unvention of Meg Swansen's and can be found in her book "Handknitting with Meg Swansen".
I had this wonderful, warm stuff called Furlana.  Oh boy!  It's 80% Merino Wool and 20% Possum fur by Sherwood Exports Ltd., New Zealand.
Believe it or not, my LYS had it in stock. 
I went back to purchase all she had but it was already all gone.  :(
I was SOOOO wrong when I thought 5 sts/1" wouldn't keep my hands warm!

The unfinished sweater, in the background, is a Top-Down Yoke Sweater I'm knitting with Andean Silk [by KnitPicks] in the color Cornflower.  More on that in another post.

The gloves even look warm! Love that cornflower blue, even if it is slippery!
