Single Handedly

JF has been complaining about the wacky air conditioning in his office since I met him. I stayed home sick one day last week and whipped up this custom glove. He said he only needed one for his computer mouse hand which prevented a case of SGS (second glove syndrome) on my part. I used some leftover alpaca yarn I used to make this hat last fall:

Can you see the resemblance? I had triple stranded it and wound it up that way into a center pull ball so there were no problems with tangles. I turned out to have just enough to make the glove and it felt good to use some stash yarn for once.

JF decided the most functional version would be fingerless except for an enclosed pinkie. The the top part of the fingers and thumb would end just before the knuckle. Turns out after 4 years of freezing cold office temps the next day when he brought the glove to work the AC had magically been fixed. Go figure!

I love the funky gloves. Isn't it amzing how much knitting you can get done when you're home sick.

For the record, the one day of pleasantly temperate air in the office was a fluke. It's still too cold.
