Some new gloves I made from leftover handspun from the socks I just knit.  PIcot edge top and feather and fan base.  100% wool handspun by me in a bit thicker then the usual commercial sock wieght.

No pattern, but here is a run down (worked from the top down)
-cast on 36 stitches
-KNit 7 rows
-*yo K2G* around
-knit 7 rows
join row with top cast on for picot
-knit 10 rows
-turn, work back and forth (creating an opening) for about 20 rows or until you can fit you thumb through easily.
-resume working in round, knit 2 rows
-work  3 repeats of feather and fan then cast off.

I used maybe 100 yards of yarn for these.
