The Reading Gloves – Heathcliff

For a while now I have been thinking about more characters for The Reading Gloves project. There’s Nabokov’s Lolita, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and last but not least, Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights. I’m still waiting to find Cathy, but Heathcliff has suddenly revealed himself to me. A very kind fellow Raveler has gifted me some handspun jacob:

Three skeins in total, all are 2ply. Two skeins come in at about 16wpi and one at roughly 21wpi. A beautiful job! I’m planning to full the resultant gloves, so that stitch definition is neigh on impossible to distinguish — as, if we have to believe Nelly Dean, wasn’t Heathcliff a swarthy individual who never let on what he was up to?
