These gloves are for another professor. It's really hard to find handknit things for men that aren't preppy - and this guy is definitely not preppy. These are knit out of Galway 100% wool, an Irish sounding yarn made in Peru, color 31. I modified the cigar gloves from Knitty. The pattern calls for the pinky and ring fingers to be fully covered and only the first three to be fingerless, but the instructions are "knit until as long as wearer's finger" or something like that. Since my wearer isn't on hand (no pun intended - really, I just noticed!), I decided to go fingerless all the way.
