My Cuban grandmother was a wonder with a crochet hook. The intricate lace she could make was simply amazing. Though she taught me to crochet, I never quite took to it. Many years later, I picked up knitting needles and found my true crafting love. These gauntlets are named Violeta because the color reminds me of all the violets that filled her house and the patterning is in the same spirit as her beautiful lace.
