These are my first gloves ever.  I am ever so proud of them.  The bird I embroidered on them is from ancient graffiti my boyfriend photographed during a trip to Rome.  The right one is slightly bigger than the left, but I think that's because I made the right one first and people with bigger hands than mine tried it on.  Can I block it down to the right size?

Anyways, I used bamboo double points (which I have fallen in love with) and Truffles yarn.  Yay, virgin wool and cashmere!

I love your Knucks!
I really liked knitty's, but you're are sooo beautiful!  Great job!
How long do you think it took you to make them?  I have so many projects on my plate right now for Christmas, but I'd love to add these!

Very cool!  I wanted to make these but I'm a little intimidated by them.   Undecided

I know they seemed pretty scary, but once you give them a try it's a lot easier than you think.

Those are great.  I love love the embroidery.  I started Fetching this morning from Knitty...but I think maybe I should switch...of course there's no way my embroidery would look as great as yours...especially if I tried to do a bird.
