Banff Baby!

After spending two whole days sifting through every yarn store on the internet looking for a good, economical choice for Banff, I lost my mind and bought Manos del Uruguay instead. I couldn't help it. It's so beautiful and soft. Plus they had my favorite color. It's called Mulberry. I can't get a decent picture of it right now. I'll have to wait for some natural light. Maybe some time in March (given the Seattle climate). I swatched this afternoon and started knitting during ER tonight. I've done about 4-5 inches of the back. This one's gonna go quick.

I did a little surfing and think I've figured out my gaping holes between the fingers problem with my gloves. I only worked on them for a few minutes today while I waited in the car outside my son's preschool. I'm still knitting the middle finger. I guess I should just cut and rip the ring and middle finger until I can pick up the stitches at the base of the fingers without leaving a hole.
