Gauntlets

Yes, I've been doing some knitting as I watch our athletes at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. I loved these fingerless gloves with their elegant cables, so decided to make them. Here's the first one - it's really hard to photograph your own hand! The pattern just casts off at the top end, but I've done a row of crochet trim so that I've formed fingerholes, to make them sit more neatly.

I love your gauntlet. I haven't finished my socks yet though. I'd forgotten all about Esme Firbanks!

they are gorgeous Shirley - haven't made things like this for years - i have some wonderful hand dyed possy fingerless gloves which Marnie Kelly got for me - waiting patiently until it is cool enough in Perth to wear them. You live in a beautiful part of the world
