Color Play

Old Gauntlets
I was asked about 1 1/2 weeks ago to pull a pattern off of a pair of gauntlets. Let's just say the person backed out after she found out how many hours are involved and the cost of doing such a thing. So about two days ago, she asked for her gauntlets back ( wristlets, sleeves, cuffs, wrist warmers whatever you want to call them). This item was something the lady in question had purchased about 10 or 13 years ago in Europe. Long story short, she was trying to pattern an item that is already under copyright by someone else. Not sure how she thinks that works, but I don't think it will work. Any way, in the time that I had the item I was having fun playing with the color changes in the pattern on them. Above is the original item, quiet dirty to say the least; I was a little grossed out putting it on for photo documentation. Below is the start of my version of what I saw. To make the items as the lady wanted them would have taken 7 hours per gauntlet. Wondering now how much she paid for 14 hours of someone's life. My guess is, probably not enough.

There is alot going on in these photos, even though it doesn't look like it. Every row has hidden threads running through it so you can do the color changes at the end of a row. It is interesting how the front looks so much different than the back of the work.

  2. It's beautiful !! Can be a nice pattern for a scarf too if done with a thicker hook !!
