Long Brown Gloves

BrownGlovesPost2

Two years ago, I bought this terrific brown wool sock yarn intending to turn it into a pair of fingerless gloves. One thing led to another, and I never quite got to knitting them…until now.

Dana Victoria Mitts by Robbyn Kenyon is a Victorian-inspired lace pattern with bobbles and leaves running from fingers to elbows. I found it on Ravelry. The mottled brown yarn I used threatened to dash their sophistication. So, I set red and white beads between the leaves, giving them a casual, every day glamour.BrownGlovesPost1

These gloves took just under 1 skein of Cascade Yarns Heritage Hand Painted Sock Yarn in Indian Summer (color 9931) and approximately 150 beads. I don’t remember how long I spent knitting them, but it was somewhere in the neighborhood of three weeks or maybe 10 hours of knitting time. I had to re-knit a few times at the beginning before I got the hang of the pattern. After that, it was smooth sailing.
