Swirly Gloves

I have been knitting away on my Koigu gloves and something peculiar started happening. The colors are swirling! Now, in my many trips around knitting blogworld, I should have realized that this was going to happen. Many-a-sock made of Koigu has this same swirl effect going on. Not that I don't like it, I was just surprised when I probably should have expected it. In the picture below you can see the dominate green color moving in a swirl to the left around the glove. The other picture is of the opposite side of the glove; the pink/blue side with green peeking in on the corners. Interesting.


Green?


Pink?

So the gloves have a new name: Swirly Girly Gloves. Ha. I love knitting with Koigu. I even love the US1 toothpick needles. :) I have started the thumb gusset since taking these pictures. I'm going to use an Asymmetrical gusset as explained in the Winter 2003 issue of Interweave Knits. I hadn't subscribed to the magazine at that point, but they have a .pdf file of the Beyond Basics gusset article in the subscriber-only area. Those Beyond Basics articles are pretty handy. Huh.
