FO: Greenbell hobo gloves
The (free! whee!) pattern is Bluebell, by Johanna Ziegler, which is super quick and easy. Quick and easy enough that I didn't mind frogging an entire glove and reknitting it when I ran out of yarn. Mods included decreasing the stockinette section on either end (not enough yarn, short fingers), and using an "afterthought" method for the thumbs rather than the cast-off-and-pick-up-stitches method. The thumb shaping in this pattern is really great and quite suitable to actually moving one's thumbs in anatomically normal fashion. The yarn is Queensland Collection Rustic Wool DK, leftover from another pair of green hobo gloves. (Not to be confused with these green hobo gloves, or these other green hobo gloves.)
I have now declared a moratorium on green hobo gloves.
