Those look great!

Does the stitching around the knuckles bother your hands at all when you are wearing them?

Wow, those are the coolest gloves I've ever seen!! You did a fantastic job on those.

Awwh shucks - thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Here a some answers to some of the inquiries:

Stitching on the knuckles is pretty easy. To get started, I just rolled the cuff of the glove down to poke the needle through the inside. Then, once I am on the working side, I keep one hand in the cuff of the glove to keep it steady. Then I just made each stitch go in-and-out with one stabbing motion - that way, you don't have to work on the 'bad' side ever. (Well, except to start each letter and tie it off).

The gloves are a pretty thick knit material. They are from Nine West and I found them at the Nordstrom Rack. (Although in hindsight, bright turquoise gloves are NOT the most wearable color. I would go with black or a neutral colored glove if i was going to do it again.)

Well I think that's it. I was thinking it would be cool to do 'daggers' gloves too...hmm.. Wink

Those are fabulous!

Who cares if they don't go with anything? I'd seriously buy a whole brand new outfit just to go with those gloves.

So when does clothing have to match? 
Anyways, a birthday suit and gloves is pretty cool.

I love that! I would do a stupid video of myself, singing 'Bang, Bang', acting like some 50's starlet wearing that. Then again, no one ever pretended I was sane.

I really like that.  I also would have thought embroidering on the knuckles would prove difficult -I am astonishingly dependent on embroidery hoops and they don't make them that small- but your work looks absolutely great.

Shameless plug: have you looked at this post?  I think the gloves would make a really cool finished project sort of thing, with a note or two on how you did the difficult bits.  If you're interested, that is.  Smiley

Also, a birthday suit and gloves IS cool.  Besides, throw on some monochrome black, white, or brown or whatever and add a turquoise necklace and your gloves instantly match.
