All Tara's fault

And she knows it, crazy Twilight-enabler.

These are Knucks, perfect for a hot almost-Summer premiere of "New Moon" this Thursday.

It's been cooking for the last 2 weeks, even though it's only November, but I made these to entertain my friend, Chantelle, who is shouting me a ticket on opening day. (I'm her T-enabler. Mwa ha ha!) She plans to entertain us by going into labor half-way through the movie.

Love the finger-down construction. Was fun making 10 teeny finger-stumps. The yarn is 5% cashmere and 95% wool, so it's a bit fluffy and nice and warm. (Just what I need!)

Originally I had the cover of "Eclipse" in mind... a nice simple twisted red ribbon on the cover. Nearly kicked the wall when I got around to actually looking! But my little flower worked out pretty well, I thought.

Did it in white, then painted a mix of food dye and vinegar on with the darning needle. Microwaved it to set the color (hopefully). Wish I could have done the letters more neatly, but, oh well...
Less than 48 hours until we go see it ;)

Fabulous!! I didn't realise you were going to put words on the gloves. It looks great. And you did an awesome job with the flower. It looks so much like the one on the cover. I must read the books sometime. Do you have your copies back??

I've had my copies back for most of this year, but I just promised to lend them to Gail on Thursday. hehe.

Apparently that's the purpose of knucks, to "tattoo" your fingers like a crim. ;)

That's a good idea... to start the gloves from the other end.
