A while ago I offered to knit Gavin something, and he requested some 'Gandalf gloves,' which I took to mean some earthy-coloured fingerless mitts. I'd been wanting to use this pattern for a while, so I figured it was close enough. used Rowan Lima which is lovely and snuggly!
He waited very patiently for me to finish these - I am not going to tell you how long they sat in the UFO pile, because it is nothing short of shameful. I need to actually work on the 'finishing stuff' thing. Whoops.
