These are a gift. One of the mums at school gave me an enormous bag of alpaca yarn in greens, browns and natural greys. I offered to knit her a little something as a thank you and she requested grey fingerless gloves (she previously bought a pair of [similar, but ribbed] green fingerless gloves of mine at the school's Twilight Market so she knew she liked them).
Alpaca yarn, roughly sport weight, held double. Just in time for midwinter - it's freezing these days.
PS. Look! The 12 year old hand model (the final photo) decided to stop biting his nails a couple of weeks ago. He went cold turkey and now his nails are lovely.
PPS. The blog, she is six! Such a big girl now.
