Lotus flowers, new colorway

Title kinda says it all.
I like these, even though they're not my usual colors.  Reminds me of forests in NE in the fall, looking at maple tree colors through a screen of pine trees.
The working of the inner wrist liner going perpendicular to the rest of the glove came out pretty well, though I had to rip out and restart 4 times to get the math just right.  Knitting math and I need a long time to get in synch.  Theoretically I know what to do to calculate gauges and based on that how many sts. I'll need for a given piece, but it never quite works out.
Getting old is nice though.  I knit on the ski machine so I don't mind re-do boring st. st. things because hey, what else am I going to do while walking for 40 minutes and watching MI-5????
