I made a pair of Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts for use in my cold, cold office:

I knit them on size 3 needles, and did not change size for the ribbing because I wanted the tops to be very loose for typing. I used KnitPicks Palette (the dark brown) and Essential (the light brown). I bought this yarn ages ago for socks that were never made. These were a lot of fun to make!

Thanks! As for the gauge--I got 33 sts per 4" on size 3 needles, so they actually came out slightly smaller than the smallest size. I have tiny hands, so this was what I was going for though... I used size 3 needles because that's the only size I had on hand! If I had them I would have gone down to size 2s I think. But loose is good because I can type with them on.

Also, soak soak soak! Mine grew in a water and conditioner bath. The stitches evened out and they look about 5X better post-wash!

Thanks again for the compliments! I haven't been knitting much, but I'm starting to get back into it.

They have a special type of wool conditioner called Euclarin (sp?). I think? That's what she means.

Normally, if you have to 'wash' your yarn, you're advised to use baby shampoo if you can't get your hand on special yarn conditioners.
