I swear I didn't knit most of these in one day. In fact, I started these in February for a friend's birthday. They're now a Christmas gift. Pathetic, I know. All I had to do was knit up a few fingers! I had these about 75% finished, and just chilling as UFOs for a loooong time. My friend knew I was working on them, and has been very gracious about not giving me grief for their unfinished state. He doesn't know I picked them up again! Won't he be surprised when they show up in his mailbox?
The pattern is Knitty's Cigar, with all of the fingers fully formed. The yarn is knitpicks Alpaca Silk, leftovers from a sweater I made myself. Hope he can deal with gloves that can't be machine washed. Because of all the alpaca goodness, they'll be super warm, though!
