These opera length gloves with their chevron cable are elegant and warm. They'd be great to keep your arms toasty in a coat, or to layer for a cool spring morning. The simple stockinette hand keeps the DK weight yarn as smooth as possible.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
