Gauntlets for the Artist

My youngest son has a passion for drawing and has been suffering for his art this winter. Unbelievably cold hands. Fingerless gloves or gauntlets, seemed like a reasonable solution.

Being determined to use up yarn in my stash, the pair of gauntlets match...up to a point. ;o) The fact they are scrappy looking though, doesn't bother my son. His hands are warm and I received a request from our other artist in residence for a pair of his own. Yay! Another chance for me to dive into my yarn stash. You can be assured that the next pair will be oddball ones as well. hee hee
In case you're interested, this is my stack of knitting inspiration at the moment.

  2. Those look nice and cozy. THanks for the book titles. I've just put them on hold at our library. I could do with some stash busting too. ;-)
