Comment on how much knitting content there is, and you will get more of it.
I found this pattern a couple of months ago, and I wanted to make it.
I am a total fangirl, but also, see how pretty the pattern is? And I have stupidly sensitive skin, so I have to wear gloves or something much later that most people do, so they are very practical for me. Also, I decided to make it from stash yarn. I had some Frog Tree Alpaca that I thought would work nicely. Alas, it was too fuzzy to show off the lovely cabling. I was not willing to do all of that work if it was not going to show, so I decided to make the pattern without most of the cabling:
They came out pretty well. HOWEVER, remember that stupidly sensitive skin? Even though these were made of alpaca, they seriously scratched my skin, especially on the back of my hands. So I donated them to charity and began again.
This time I bought yarn for the project--after some poking around, I decided upon RY Classic Silk & Wool DK. It is soft yet provides a nice definition, and it is smooth so it doesn't scratch. Also, this time I worked the pattern more or less as written:
I love how they came out.
I have also been working on various socks and designing another pair of handwarmers, but I have finished these two projects recently:
a long, thin Colinette slip-stitch scarf (two of them, actually),
and a newborn kimono.
