Dashing DH

My last FO for 08 was the 2nd Dashing glove which I gave to DH.

Dashing

I've had it done for a couple of weeks but only just managed to get my DH to (begrudgingly and not very well!) model them for me


Dashing for DH

This pattern + this yarn = very nice match indeed. I think these gloves look so much nicer on a bigger man hand. Hopefully they will keep his hands nice and warm come winter. I definitely recommend the pattern if you are looking for some thick and warm 'manly' gloves or if you have some leftover Bendigo Rustic 12ply!

I had to modify the length of the pattern quite a bit (all listed on my ravelry page). There are more photos on my flickr too.

very dashing ;-) I do love these gloves, most especially on a man hand!

they do look good - but I can't help but think fair enough of DH to not want to model knitwear in the temperatures we've been getting!! I know you've been getting hotter weather down in Chch than we have up top of the South.......

they are dashing! maybe he'd be more motivated to model them in the winter, when he will really appreciate them.
