Can you imagine a wind so hot and dry that it is called poison? In this glove design, I have played with “poisonously” bright variegated yarn contrasted with a solid. Offset cables mimic sand moved by the wind. The cuff has Arabic lettering for the word Samoom stranded as a Middle Eastern flavored variation on Fair Isle. This is a perfect design to use that bright skein of hand dyed yarn that is a bit too much knit by itself. The contrast color can easily be used for all three sizes, to make a matching or coordinating set for the whole family.
