This time, I used the rights sized needles, I didn't forget the decrease row after the ribbing and the fingers and thumb appeared in the right order and in the right place! With great relief, the gloves were ready for sewing up.
I've made these gloves with a longer cuff, perfect for keeping the wrists warm whilst driving, and it prevents there being a gap between the end of coats sleeves and the start of the gloves. Hopefully, they'll do the trick and make things easier for the recipient.
They're not quite ready to fly the nest, they need a hat to go with them.
