These gloves are actually re-purposed socks. The lovely Daughter threw them in the laundry not realizing that this Stoddart Family farm mohair/wool blend is not machine washable. The soles of the socks did not survive. I love this yarn too much to abandon it and there was a bit left. So I salvaged the cuffs and added and inch of ribbing with thumb and improvised index finger openings. Cool, right?
