Knucks!

I actually finished these on Tuesday evening, but haven't had a chance to post them here yet -- a pair of Knucks for my beloved husband. He left town on Wednesday, so I didn't have a chance to tattoo the knuckles before he took them away. (It's just as well, he's tattooed enough as it is.)

Yesterday he said that his mom was impressed with them. He also said that he wished the cuff were longer. This, after I very carefully knit the cuff lengths to his specifications. Oy. Theoretically I could undo the cast-off and knit down, but I don't think I love him enough to do that. ;-)
Details and a few more pictures are on my blog.

Great Job! I try not to knit for my husband very often because he's majorly picky.. the things we do for love!

Great job. That is one of my favorite patterns. Very cool looking, useful and very do-able.

Those look great! Mr.sunneshine had a problem with the cuffs; too short and too stretched out. So now when I make them for men, I drop two needle sizes for the ribbing and double the length. In our house knucks get worn alot, which makes it all worth it. I hope your honey wears them a ton, too!
