I made them, she loved them, and now I want to share the pattern with you. Aren't you lucky?
Now, if you aren't a knitter, you won't care. Just look at the pretty picture. If you are a knitter, these are easy whip up and lovely to wear. A great gift for someone you love.
These gloves are named after the yarn I used. I thought it suited them perfectly. I hope you think so too!
