To start off I once saw a pattern that listed the experience level as advanced-beginner and I think that perfectly describes me. I can kind of do stuff but I'm still a beginner and if I can't finish a project in a weekend I'm probably not going to.
Secondly, I'm the last person you would guess to make or wear elven gloves. No judgment just not my style.

But I was looking for a pattern to practice Undecided lace and I found this Vogue http://store.vogueknitting.com/p-1902-fingerless-gloves.aspx one and talked myself into buying it. It's was awesome! I did it in two weekends, one for each glove, and it was fun.

I had the skien of Souk which I don't like because it breaks so easily but I loved the color. I bought it with fantasies of making a leafy something or other. The pattern wanted 2 200 yard skeins but I did it with just one.

The construction is what I love most. Basically you make two stars, stitch them together, then fold in half and stitch at the points.

There are a couple mistakes but hey for a first try I am proud, I love them, I think they are badass, and I would never wear them. So my favorite part of this whole story is that I wrapped them up pretty and left them at my friends door. She would totally sport them and I got to do a random good deed.

I love these.

But, mostly, and this should not detract from your pretty knitting, I love that people who bought this pattern also bought... a goat pillow.  Grin

Anything elven is great. I play D&D and I'm an elven Ranger (melee and ranged) and I don't LARP (dress up) but I want to!
I LOVE those. They're so beautiful and look like something out of nature.
