I finished these on the bus back from North Dakota last weekend. They came together very quickly. I did get to wear them to church on Christmas Eve. The pattern is from Alabama Chanin from Natalie Chanin. I have a matching cardigan that Steve has dubbed theatrical. He is probably right but it is still really fun. Also, last weekend I went to the Nutcracker in Fargo and both the gloves and the cardigan would have fit in perfectly.
