Bring out your inner dragon
I have a confession to make.
I kind of have a SERIOUS dragon fascination.
I kinda want to be a dragon…
So the first time I saw a KNITTED scale mail item, I literally swooned. I NEEDED some of that scale mail action in my life.
Enter the Dragon Scale fingerless gloves.
Not only are they addictive to knit, but they are addictive to wear.
(seriously you won’t be able to stop petting them)
Are YOU ready to get your dragon on?
