And this is what they're looking like so far. Had to play with stitch counts a few times. The knuckle end is rolled at the moment - a facing will be picked up, knitted and stitched down. Same for the elbow end. And the thumbhold - just a slit at the moment, the only bit of flat knitting, will be faced. I think I'll use the gold yarn for this.
But I love how the warm leaves practically vibrate against the duller green.
