3 weeks after getting my hand bashed by the pvc shaft of a foam sword and the bruises have finally faded. It's still a little sore in spots, but that's getting better too. I decided that I needed to make the gloves I wanted a priority. So I sat down with the pattern I intended to modify and got to work.

I knew I wanted a good cushy fabric across the back of my hand, and room to slip a layer or two of foam in there. Currently my biggest concern was right across my knuckles as that's where I seem to catch most of the hits when I go to block. I also wanted the palms free so I could easily grip my sword. I've had it go flying out of my hand at least once and I'd rather minimize that. It's just silly to have to take a death because you're staring in disbelief at your now empty hand.

Because this is a modification of an existing pattern, I was sure to share which pattern I was modifying when I wrote it up. Thus, it's also a free pattern. They knit up fairly quick so are good for a quick satisfaction project.

Really..between thus and the helm, I'm so impressed at the way your brain and muse are working to create these things!

LOL Well, they do get chipped now and again. Part of the secret is that I do my nails on Thursdays, take pictures on Friday or Saturday, battle on Sunday, and then on Thursday I post the picture. ;)

I have been pretty lucky with them not cracking and breaking a ton. I credit my base coat.
