I'm coming out of lurkdom to show your my fetching gloves.  I couldn't get a self timed picture of both of them, so here's one. (there's 2, I swear!)



Knit with manos from my stash, this project took 2 nights of very leisurely knitting. I'm not sure I'll ever wear them, but I have someone in mind to give them to.

Fun!

I just finished main part of the right hand.  I used a double strand of dalegarn wool and size 4 needles for guage.  So far I'm pretty pleased.  It's actually my first project on dpns and my first cable, but i'd say it's pretty easy to work with.

Edit:

I've finished these, and I am terribly excited to wear them to the office tomorrow!  Gotta love air conditioning.

I cast on maybe an hour ago, and I'm almost done with the cuff... and I'm knitting slowly, thanks to a badly cut finger.  These do work up really fast!

I'm using Simply Soft in Iris - which isn't the blue in the picture, but a nice rich purple.  I like it so far.  Smiley

I like both of your fetchings. Very nice. It's nice to see other peoples versions. I finished mine last night. I have pictures on my web page. D.I.Winer, I noticed you used a different bind off that keeps the edge from curling out. That's the one thing about the picot bind off on these - it tends to curl out.

nightowl - yeah, I'm not such a fan of picot bind off - so I just did a normal bind-off - I tried a weird ribbing bind-off, but it still curled out.

I'm in on trying these too! I love how they look, I just have to get the yarn. Any suggestions on a really soft feeling yarn that's not too expensive? Sorry, I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to yarn.  Embarrassed

Hi, I'm Amanda =]

I'm just getting back into this, but if any pictures are missing, let me know. Photobucket hates me.

The yarn recommended in the pattern is really soft and not too expensive (less than $10), if you buying yarn I would go with that.

I wanted to use some yarn from my stash so I am using a self-striping yarn called Paint Box.  It is not as soft as the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino but I really like the colors.

I made these yesterday afternoon.  The color isn't showing very well in the pic, they are a very light heather grey.  I used Alpaca with a Twist, Baby Twist ($6).  It used just one skien, so it was well worth it.  They are soooooo soft!  Even though it is 95 today, I can't take them off.
