Gioielli Gloves from Textured Stitches book.

Textured Stitches has been a great book in my knitting library.  This is my fourth project from its pages.  I have made the Professoressa Cardigan, the Raindrop Cardigan, and the Starflower Hat.

So anyway, here are my Gioielli Gloves.  These are actually probably a year old, and before that, they sat around for at least six months, completed and waiting for me to weave in their ends.
 If it looks like it would be a pain to knit all those tiny tubes for each finger, it's because it IS a pain.  However, there is a huge sense of accomplishment once they are complete - as in, Wait, did I really just knit myself gloves?

 These have a cute smocked detail on the cuff, which is really unique and prettier than plain old ribbing.

These have already seen quite a bit of wear, as you can tell from the fuzzies on the fingers.  They go perfectly with my gray Pepernoot coat.  I don't remember the name of the yarn I used, but it is very luxurious.  If I remember it is mostly merino with some possum hair thrown in.  It was a gift from my parents-in-law from a trip they took to Australia.  I  probably have enough left over for a headband - perhaps even the Bianca Headband from Textured Stitches.   :-)


  1. So cute Jenny! These will be perfect for the chili Florida weather we have here! I love the variegated coloring of the yarn and I bet it was a pain creating! But they look really good on you and you did an awesome job!

  2. Great job! Possum hair?! That threw me off a bit! Maybe I should try to catch some possums here and sell their fur!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It is wonderful to know someone is reading. :-)
