...tried magic loop for the first time last night... I ended up calling it nightmare loop

I love magic loop so I may be biased but the really REALLY important thing that made it work for me was having needles with a very VERY flexible cable. I tried it several times with Clover Bamboo's but it really didn't work well until I bought a pair of Addi Turbo's for a pair of socks. Knit Picks new needles seem to get rave reviews for having a soft, flexible cable also.

You know what, I think i'll be a cheap-o and use Caron's "Simply Soft" yarn. I have a lot of yarn to use up. What do you think? I'm pretty sure i'm going to change the top of the mitt so that it doesn't curl in.

I just got past the first three cables on mine. I'm using some random thrift store pink yarn which might not be a good idea, but it's coming out well so far.

I love this pattern but I really want to make it with fingers. I get chilly fingers who need some love too! Any ideas on how to add some?

I don't think that this pattern has seperate openings for fingers, just one for the thumb and one for the other fingers. You might be better off knitting up to a point and then modifing from another part of pattern, like the "Knucks" one, which would probably be pretty easy to make into full fingers. I haven't really looked at that one, though, so I don't know if it's really all that compatible. Good luck!

cinnabunny - maybe try just making the "finger" portion longer?  It won't give you individual fingers, but it'll cover more skin.  That's what I'm planning on doing:  another cable repeat or two on the finger end, and a few more on the wrist end.  They're lovely as is, but I like a longer mitt, personally.  Smiley

well I just finished the picot bind off on the first mit. Took me a couple false start trys to figure out the edging correctly. The edging does curl outward. I like it, but I can see where it would be nice for the mit to be longer to cover more of the lower finger area. Now I've got to do the thumb.  Grin

Hi, I finished the left one. There is a picture of it on my web page (click on the little globe icon at left), or at my  blog. When I did the thumb I picked up 4 stitches along each edge instead of two. Then I knitted one round, then on the second round I k2tog the two extra stitches on each edge to bring me to the 17 the pattern called for. I wanted more stitches at the base of the thumb so it wouldn't pull and make gaps as much. Then I added an extra round (5 instead of 4) to the thumb to make it a hair longer.
