Lady Chatterley’s Lover

Here are Lady Chatterley and her lover, Mellors. I knitted Lady Chatterley in natural Wensleydale longwool. The cuff has a picot cast-on and is knitted in a twisted 1×1 rib. It reminds me a bit of a corset. I gave a her wedding ring too.

Mellors is knitted in hemp and I kept it simple and a bit rough around the edges. I like the contrast between the two pairs of gloves.

The first time they “get together” they lie down on a brown army blanket and brush away the chicken feathers that are strewn around the small hut they’re in, so I will display the gloves on a blanket and scatter some chicken feathers around.
