Hand in Glove

“handle with kid gloves”  “the gloves are off” “an iron hand in a velvet glove” “to throw down the gauntlet”

These are some of the many idioms in daily use demonstrating the place of gloves in our past and present.

Angharad has travelled the globe researching patterns and designs for knitted gloves.

With this knowledge she has moved into designing her own gloves based on traditional gloves she has observed. Having started her work on 4 needles she has now moved on to circular needles.

Her intricate designs were much admired by all EYES members.
