I had been planning to make these for a long time, to match a shirt I knitted which you see on the right (the Broken Rib Tank pattern by Kristen TenDyke). The shirt appears to have more pink, but that is actually a pooling effect. Because of the silk-wool blend, the shirt can be both warm and cool. In warm weather, I wear it on its own; in cooler weather, I wear it over a long-sleeved shirt as a spencer. In both, I can see myself wearing these fingerless gloves to make the outfit just a little bit more interesting.
The most important reason it took so long for these to get made, was that there were always other projects getting in the way. And then, when I finally did get around to starting these... my knitting needles got confiscated at the airport for the first time in 5 years of international flights. As a result, I finally made these with the magic loop method even though I prefer sock needles, because the one store near me that sells knitting needles does not carry sock needles in the right size.
I've also made very good progress with two sewing projects, the Vogue dress and the summer top, and tomorrow I will be spending an evening crocheting granny squares at a get-together for my granny square blanket!
