Knitted in the round, these cozy gloves are then embroidered with a rustic design on the backs of the hands. The gloves can either be worn like fingerless gloves or pulled down for long cuffs. This is a great project to get creative with colors and embroidery designs.

Mollie Makes is a delightful UK-based creative magazine for the vintage-loving, embroidery-dabbling knitter and crocheter. Seriously. Each issue has a little bit of everything in it, from inspirational stories by fellow crafters to fun resources to amazing projects.
I first heard about this magazine from One Sheepish Girl - she has contributed to the magazine in the past and shared it on her wonderful blog. I'm hoping to be involved with it someday too, but for now I'm just enjoying reading it! I found out that you can subscribe to one month FREE (2 magazines total), and if you like what you get, it's $5.99/month after that for 2 issues per month. I think it's a great deal, especially for the content and work that goes into each issue. Check out the Apple store and get downloading!

Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, these gloves are elegant and softknitted in a white sock yarn. Alice in Wonderland has never been my favorite story, but the whimsicality and the beautiful, sometimes ridiculous mystery of it has always drawn me. It's also an early spring or late winter story, which is why I was inspired to design these gloves. The eyelet stitch pattern gives them an almost ragged, yet lacy look - perfect for the mysterious and elusive White Rabbit.
This pattern took a while to draft, and a few movies to knit, but there's no better feeling than finishing a concept! These turned out exactly the way I wanted. I love them!
Pattern available on Ravelry for $6.00
