Well, I have been working on these for almost 3 years. I started them around the time of our squirrel contest, during my squirrel obsessed phase that has never really subsided. I started by designing them in my little graph paper sketch book. I made the left hand first, then changed the design a little for the right hand. Finally, I created the pattern with Stitch Painter, flipped the oak leaves and came up with my favorite pattern after I had finished the right hand. As you can see, I am not one for making swatches. Good thing my right hand is so much longer than my left. I used Canopy from The Fibre Company with a little trim of Raumagarn. I am happy to share my pattern charts for anyone wanting to make these. Just send me a note or come in to the shop.
