This is my first attempt at knitting gloves on a knitting machine.  I used my KH588  using the patterning feature for the diamond design.  I used my handspun alpaca for the main color and a mixed breed wool for the contrast color.  The alpaca is a natural rose grey and the wool used for the contrast color was dyed with “Red, White and Blue” kool-aid.

I broke the glove down into sections: Cuff, Palm/Back(main body), thumb, fingers.  I was using a drawing of my BIL’s hand for basic dimensions.  Did a test swatch of my yarn for gauge and went from there hoping for the best.  I hope they fit.
