Wind-up: Both are the all-Kidsilk narrow stripe variant of Johnstone Gloves. They don't have shaping for the palm, which means they don't look as good worn as they do flat. But they are extremely warm and presumably excellent for playing soap bubble handball.

I made another pair, this one a keeper with an asymetrical, interlocking color scheme.
