gloves, gloves , gloves

Pair number 1 by me

irish gloves threadbook photo irish glovesThis pair of gloves my daughter wanted to make but she kept getting hung up on the pattern so i decided to work them for me instead.  When she saw them half way done she realized what her mistake was and it was a simple one.  She had just forgotten to turn her work is all.  At the end of each round and go back and fourth instead of around the hand. She did not give up on making gloves but went to another pair for starters.  The photo at the left is what they look like in the book.   Below is where I am on them as of last night.  As you can see part way through one glove and a little started on the second glove.  Have not even started the cuffs yet.  These are supposed to be size 60 thread but I am doing them in size 50 hope they still work out ok I have a tight tension going so it should.

    Gloves are very pretty–you and your daughter are doing a great job. Seeing your post today brought back memories of being a young child in the 60s and my mom making sure I had pretty and dressy gloves on when we went to church. Times have certainly changed since then.

    Can you tell me where you got the pattern for the gloves (especially the one with flowers down the back)?
