Horse-shoe Lace Gloves

Even now it still amazes me that I can make something with my own two hands that is pretty, practical and suuuuuper warm. I’ve been wearing these almost every day since I weaved in the last stray end, feeling a huge sense of handmade satisfaction. It will never get old!

I think back to all the gloves i’ve bought in the past that fell apart and can’t imagine that ever happening to these. The one pair of proper gloves I bought on holiday in Peru, I lost within a month of coming home, sob! Since that moment I resolved to knit the perfect pair. I should probably make a chain or cord of some-sort to keep them up my sleeves, just like when I was little.
