I am not getting married. Nor am I Norwegian. But folks, who really cares?
I LOVE me some Norwegian Wedding Gloves.
I tried on a sample glove at my old Salt Lake LYS over Thanksgiving and fell in love. When I found out it only took one skein of this super silky soft decadent yarn–well, there was just no other option but to make myself a pair.
My friend Teri (and my photographer for this shoot, Thanks Teri!) asked me where I was going to wear these. I couldn’t really answer her, I mean, these are not what I would call everyday gloves. But can you imagine a world where they are? I would have to replace 90% of the clothes in my wardrobe but it just might be worth it.
So if you can’t tell, I really, really love these gloves. I love the short hole-y cuffs. I love the beautiful v-shaped lace pattern on the thumb.
I even love how elegant the underside of the gloves are.
There is nothing not to love about these gloves. They were even really fun to knit. I am sure me not liking something about them or some huge mistake I made would make this a more interesting post. But I got nothing. I just love them.
