I used to love digging through all of my grandmother's various lace "social gloves" that she would wear (with hats and pearls) whenever she went out to a friend or neighbor's home for tea. My generation has never been forced into such social nicetieswhich means we can play with bold colors, stitch patterns, and other modifications of the traditional summer glove.
This version is a simple riff on the idea, with an easy stitch pattern and minimal shaping that really lets hand-dyed and handspun yarns shine.
