First off, just to let y'all know, I have a small handful of yarn skeins to go into the shop either later today (Friday) or on Saturday. All of them are cormo wool, with one cormo/angora blend skein.
Last night at the knit group, I darned in all the ends on my Knotty Gloves and those are finished!
Pattern: Knotty Gloves (Ravelry link) by Julia Mueller. This is a really nicely written, easy to follow pattern. She gives all the reversed shaping for the left and right hands (so that the cable stays on the upper side of the wrist) without you having to do that for yourself. The cables take a little bit of concentration to figure out where you are in the pattern, but if you color-code them with highlighters, that is made much easier. The rest of the glove is a piece o' cake.
Yarn: STR lightweight in "Rare Gem" colorway. This is a blend of purples, blues and browns. I used 2.3 ounces of the 360-yard skein for these gloves, and I have 1.7 ounces left (maybe enough for a pair of fingerless mitts? Definitely enough if you wanted to make a pair of baby booties.)
Needles: US size 2 bamboo DPNs.
Mods: None - believe it or not.
Notes: I love how these fit. There's enough interesting detail in the pattern to keep you moving through it, but not so much as to make it fiddley to work. I used up a skein of sock yarn I probably wouldn't have ever made socks with - so another stash-buster project done!
All for now....
