All around the Northern Hemisphere of the Roman Empire there are mysterious objects found called Dodecahedron.
A few years ago a friend directed me to a You Tube Video about a possible use for a Dodecahedron - making gloves. I contacted the guy in the video Martin Hallet, and he kindly sent me his Dodecahedron to play with.
Having experimented with various thickness of yarn I made fingers with the Dodecahedron and finished the palm/wrist in Cross Knit Looping with a needle.
Whilst I can make a serviceable pair of gloves using the mystery object, I do NOT think that this is it's orginal purpose.
