Men Along, Part 2

Mike has a part time job delivering papers, and all of our gloves are sort of bulky, so he doesn't wear gloves on his route. As a result, his hands are pretty chapped up from the cold weather we've had. For Valentine's Day, I'm making him a pair of gloves like the ones for my brother. Instead of the Passport yarn, I'm using Galaxy Blue Peruvian Collection Baby Silk. To keep the gloves thin, I'm also using my trusty size 0s. I'm hoping the gloves will be thin enough to where he can work with them on, warm enough due to the alpaca content, and soft enough due to the silk content. Here's a progress pic:
This yarn is wonderful! I'd love to use it for the silk ribbed camisole in Vintage Knits, but I only have 4 balls each in the nimbus blue and the cajun rose. It'd take about 12 balls total of one of the colors to make the project. Unfortunately, the Baby Silk has become very popular and Elann is sold out. If I can't find another source, I'll probably use the yarn for more gloves or some fancy - handwash only - socks.
