Caitlin's gloves

Caitlin bought this lovely glittery wool for herself a while ago, it's Creative Yarns DK Rainbow Glitz in Red/Black.  She wanted a pair of gloves, due largely to her ability to lose them, and I'd just got myself Susette Palmer's book Gloves.

These gloves are quite simple, they are simply a twin of each other with no extra rows after the little finger, and way too big for her despite me doing a tension swatch, but she loves them and that's all that matters.  It was nice to get back into circular knitting again, I enjoy making gloves and once I've finished the aran tunic I'm on I'm planning to use the leftover wool to make myself another pair, I just have a pair of long armed gauntlets at the moment since I lost my flipover fingerless gloves.
