Our wonderful Vive took a skein of this yarn (color #1862) and tried out this very unique free pattern, by Sybil R, Zoom Out Fingerless Gloves. What she found was (and I quote here) "It was a challenging but full of fun knit. It’s not really hard but just have to pay attention. Never seen anything more creative than this."

One skeins should be enough for a set of these great fingerless gloves, in almost all sizes. Vivie's photos are shown in the right-hand column below the top photo.

Ambient is a most interesting yarn. I quote Skacel here:

This eye-catching fairisle not only has a quality high-twist that resists pilling, but it is a 100% merino superwash that can be used for just about anything! It feels incredible on the skin, and has the perfect amount of bounce - the kind that can make all your stitches uniform and even with little effort.

Great for hats, sweaters, gloves, shawls, socks, and more, try it striped with a solid or on its own and you’re sure to fall head over heels!

In addition to the one that Vivie decided to try out, there are other amazing free patterns on Ravelry by Sybil R that take my breath away -- and I think this yarn would work beautifully in any of these. Take a look at her Fingerless Gloves - Non-Standard Construction section -- aren't they amazing?

Now Ambiente is 100% Merino Superwash Wool with 170 yards per 50 gram ball. We got in a sampling of colorways, just a few of each to try out -- in the order you see them here on the top photo, starting at 12:00 and going around clockwise:

• 1860: gold, brown, green, olive

• 1861: blues and cream and khaki, grey and black

• 1862: rose, peach, violet, cream, khaki

• 1864: brown, beige, cream and sky blue

• 2205: teal, green, grey, yellow

• 2207: deep greens and blues, plus white
