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

The most complicated thing I had done before this was socks.  It's really not as bad as it looks.

Thanks for the comments guys!! Too bad I can't shrink the bigger one... the other one fits better.

They really didn't take that long to knit.  I made the first one in a day, and the second one was mosltly finished in about 8 hours.  So much fun to make, seriously.  Everyone should have a pair.

I'm considering making a pair for a friend who has constantly cold hands.  Any ideas for embroidery?

You might be able to shrink the larger glove....try steaming it with an iron.  Just be careful that you don't scald yourself!

Super-cute gloves!

Heh, well that had you one up on me.  I've yet to even try socks.  I think socks will probably be my next project.

Man, I wish I did, that would be a great idea for a gift to personalize it and all.  I hate to say snowflakes for icecubes but that's the first things that come to mind.  I thought about maybe making some navy blue ones and then putting a garden on them...with full on green leaves and different color blooms but I have lofty goals I never achieve craftwise.

Speaking of blocking - I just made my 4th (!) pair of knucks and I was thinking about blocking them but I am not sure how to set them up to dry.  Pin to a cushion?  stuff with small rolls of newspaper?  how does one block gloves?

thanks

What about something like this with swirls going down the finger stubs?

Those look great!  Were you able to shrink the bigger one?

With wear the smaller one stretched so they're about the same size.  I think if I made these again I'd use a sturdier yarn.  As yummy as Truffles is, it stretched more than I would have liked and has a tendency to pill.

Really warm though.

Cheesy thanks for the ideas for embroidery!  I don't know if I'll get around to making another pair for a while, but it's good to have ideas reserved.
