Happy and prosperous new year! May there be peace and joy in your lives.

The gloves are finished. They look quite alike, but they are not identical.

Fortissima Gloves finished

Terje wondered how I'd made the thumb increases on these gloves. I used a variant of traditional Estonian glove thumb gusset. I just increased every other row with YO's, but twisted the YO on the next round so there are no holes. I also alternated which side of the previous YO I made the next one to make them line up. Hmmm... This is tough to explain by words, here's a chart.

Thumb increases chart

I – knit stitch;
O – yarn over;
◊ – twisted knit stitch.
