"mosiac knit" fingerless gloves

Pattern from the January '11 issue of Knit Today magazine, page 32

I've never done the technique of mosaic knitting before, you only use one colour at a time slipping stitches to create the colour changes. unlike fair isle there's not the same annoying carrying of yarn thru the back and it actually looks quite neat...

This was after another hour or so with a few interuptions...

I like the way they do the shapings just pick up and round knitted into the seam (okay i did the alternate back and forth and hand seam as i cannot get round knitting neat lol). I think I'll be making more of these as they only took an often interrupted day to make up and look great.
