So my loving non-knitter sister went into a yarn store and randomly picked out some yarn and sent it to me for my birthday. She has such good taste, she sent me some Malabrigo, some Regia sock yarn, and one skein of this tan/cream Cascade 220. I had never used the Cascade 220 before and couldn't wait to try it out, so I just had to make myself some handwarmers. I now believe the hype-Cascade 220 is so nice- very soft and holds the cables really well.



Pattern: Dashing from knitty.com
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: Crystal Palace size 7 DPNs
Modifications:
After the last cable row, I only did 12 more rows (as opposed to the 24 advised by the pattern) before putting in the thumb. I think they would have been much too long for me with all 24 rows.
Also, the pattern advised putting 20 stitches on 1 needle and then 10 on each of the other 2 needles, but I found this a little awkward, I just divided them up evenly.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Those look really pretty! I like how the yarn looks heathered.
I love Cascade 220! It comes in about a billion colors, so I use it a lot.

i really like how the cables look kind of futuristic? ha... in the first picture, it looks like circuitry or a dna strand or something.
