So here they are, my first set of gloves, well, the first set that I've made anyways.

The artistic shot of one of the gloves being worn:

Both of the gloves together:

Detail shot of the pattern:

So, it's been a while since I started these (about a year and a half ago I got frustrated with the second one and quit for a while), but I believe it's a 100% wool yarn. I don't remember what brand though. I used this pattern http://sasw.blogspot.com/2006/06/guatemalan-gloves.html , but I added a few modifications here and there (like making the wrist longer so that snow doesn't creep up my sleeve). I've never knitted gloves before so it was a learning experience. Any comments?

I really love them.  Good idea to make them longer.
