Rib and Cable Mitts
From the Spring IK. Verdict: I love em!
Nate's sister was visiting a few weeks ago and saw a pair of the VooDoo wristwarmers that I had made and said she really wished she had something like that. So, I flipped through the IK, saw these, and cast on.
A winner of a pattern.
Jo Sharp DK wool. Size 3 US DPNs. Total yarn used was a little under 100yds of the purple and about 25 yds of the blue (hhmmm, stash buster).
I think I'd like to knit these with a bigger, bolder cable. I don't know if its all my Aran swatching, but this little rope cable seemed so simple and little to me!
Quick to knit (start to finish, 1 week, including 5 days with no knitting on them and work on 3 other things plus spinning).
Feels like turbo knitting when you put a sock down and start on DK yarn!
Wilco watches the knitting eagerly, hoping that I'm finally knitting something he can chew up with glee:
Yep. I like the Mitts. I think I'll be making a few more pairs of these for gifts this year.
