|I need to slightly tweak the fish so they read from both ends and have no right side up.|

|Make sure to do a backstitch section at the edges. Notice I have left the unseamed edges raw, being leather. Just noted in case you want to hem.|
|I have (or am about to) put the pdf files on The Victorian Rug Makers,Yarra Valley Group Facebook, so you can download the actual size. If you search 'gauntlet' you'll find them.|
I have broadish hands but thinnish wrists. I suggest you adjust the pattern with paper and sticky tape before cutting into any leather. Or run it up in calico.

Answer: The green glows and picks up on the shine of the French hand-loomed silk upholstering. There's a story behind this chaise too...

|You can't see well with these photo's, but all is well, it looks good. I made coffee so I could sit and problem-solve, putting my big person pants on in case I really needed to pull a lot out and do it again. But no.. I'll just plug on.|

|New little pattern available for $3AUD in my Ravelry or Etsy shops.|
My vast hoard of yarn includes a few snippets of very old wool, given to me by my Grandma. One of these is the gorgeous lavender pebble-dashed bouclé seen here, which is now all but used up. It must be at least fifty years old. Good thing I hung on to it huh? Always a sensible thing to do.
I did (and do) intend to make another pair of these, using the leftover wool purchased for my Fair Isle Thistle Wristwarmer's and Tam o'Shanter. I'll add them as a project on Ravelry very soon.
OK, so my original plan was to see how far I could take the 10 balls of Jamieson's Spindrift, but I was distracted by the bouclé.
