I promised my husband a pair gloves this Christmas and here they are, fresh off the needles.  They're just a couple months late for winter. Roll Eyes

They're my own design, with inspiration from Elizabeth Zimmerman and Knitty's Broadstreet mittens. 

More details and pics here.

Thanks, knittyknitter.  I'm thinking of writing up a pattern for these.  Would you be interested?

I would be. I like them much better with the Fair Isle than just the plain Broadstreet ones.
