One of my Christmas projects, first-ever gloves (albeit with no fingers and only half a thumb), and great fun to knit. The gauntlets are designed to be elbow-length--I shortened them by 4" thinking I wouldn't have enough yarn otherwise, but I only used 63 grams of yarn. It's a nice pattern, with arm shaping.
