Evenstar Fingerless Gloves

"An Elven maid there was of old, a shining star by day: Her mantle white was hemmed with gold, her shoes of silver-grey." - "Fellowship of the Ring," J.R.R. Tolkein

I made these beautiful fingerless gloves a year ago as an ambitious beginning knitter, and just finishing them nearly drove me up the wall. If you attempt these and succeed, you will not only have a beautiful pair of gloves, but a deeper capacity for patience. If you don't succeed, well, just try not to stab something with the knitting needles...

This picture was taken from the pattern website.

The pattern can be found here.

Merry Christmas!
