I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany's and got the idea for the Holly GoLightly Fingerless Gloves. They are elegant and give you the warmth of gloves but the look of wearing a fancy bracelet over your glove. The beading is paced out, so you have a lot of just knit rows, except for the bracelet, which goes pretty fast. These are very simple to knit and great for a beginner. Bottom up design, so you can try on as you go.

My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.
I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
