Below is a detail of the "cuff" for my gloves. There will be four buttons holding it together (the grey will button over the red). These gloves are kind of a modern take on an old fashion woman's glove.
I have actually completed the pinky and part of the ring finger since this photo was taken last night. A far cry from photos of the last time I posted about these lovelies. If you click here you can view my previous post from March and from there you can click on the link to knitpicks where I found the yarn and pattern plus see a photo of the finished product.
I noticed that the finished gloves are exactly the same stripe-wise on each of the fingers. I am not too worried about that. In fact, I am going to embrace the miss matched stripes I am certain to encounter on my gloves. I think I prefer it that way too. Kind of like the "common myth which has developed that all Amish quilts contain a deliberate flaw because to make something perfect would be to challenge God".
These Firehouse Gloves (named after the yarn) will be perfect this coming winter!
