I figured less talk, more do with the gloves was best, particularly since I was on deadline. So, I give you, a partially finished glove!
It's the most subtle color of Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino I've ever seen. You'd almost think it was one of the solids. I actually have all of the fingers finished now and am working on the thumb - yes, these are fingerless gloves. This picture was taken last night at 8:30 PM. After this comes...the second glove.

By the way, gloves are a tad slower to work on than socks.

That's some seriously sexy nailpolish.

The glove is pretty glorious itself and has inspired me to maybe give gloves a whirl.

I concur what is that bewitching shade?

Sexy nails, sexy gloves... I may have to cast on (and be reminded again of how UNsexy I am...)

The nail polish is Essie's Lady Godiva. The Man Who Lives in the House will be pleased that others are appreciative of my nail polish. He has a serious nail fetish, one for long nails and colors such as these. The KPPPM is color #1010. The glove, which is my first attempt at such, is a simple K2, P2 rib on size 2.5 needles. And gloves aren't very hard. But I don't think any knitting is very hard, so don't take my word for it.

I almost never paint my nails--working in food service means long, nice-looking nails are almost impossible to maintain. So a few weeks ago, the fiance tells me, one of my friends had a wicked-cool color of nail polish on today, do you want me to bring you a bottle when I come visit?

I'm anxiously waiting to find out what this wicked-cool color may be. Well, to be honest, I'm just anxiously waiting for him to come home, but the nail polish is an extra bit of mystery!

Beautiful gloves! I love that dark blue color so much! I need to take up the dpns and make something... I must say I am a little intimidated by them. Yours look great--you are like a hand model :)

I agree that the nails (and gloves) are fabulous. I have some of the world's worst nails, so I envy folks who can grow 'em.

I love your gloves! And by the way--you have absolutely beautiful nails! I am a nail nibbler, and I can only dream that mine would ever look as good!

Simply glovely! Love the color, and if I had nails like yours, I'd make all my gloves fingerless :-)

very nice knitting!
