FO: Bass Gloves

Finally! An FO!

It took me ages to finish these - partially because I have no time and partially because they were originally meant for me... but my husband liked them so much that he wanted them for himself. So. Rip and reknit in a larger size.

The Bass Gloves

Pattern: Cigar from Knitty, Summer 05
Yarn: Daelgarn Falk in Green and Brown - Sport Weight
Needles: Size 3
Mods: Chopped the pinky and ring fingers to make knucks.

These are perfect for sitting around on the back patio playing bass. Or insulating against a cold beer whilst watching football. Or protecting the hands whilst raking leaves *ahem*. Actually, they're just great all-around gloves, and I'm going to have to make myself some post-haste. Although... I have a skein of black superwash leftover from my CPH - I'm thinking "Dashing" would be rather... well... dashing. Given that I should have more knitting time in the near future, perhaps I will cast on for Dashing instead...

I love those! The colors you chose are great. I also love that with the cooler season coming upon us, fingerless mitts and the like are popping up all over.
