Rib and cable mitts from IK Spring 2006 (http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/2006_spring.asp), in Knit Picks Gloss, burgundy:



I love them!  But they're not for me, actually; they're for my sister in Seattle whose house is basically uninsulated (Seattle's warm, but not that warm).  Of course I took so long making them that it's just about spring there now.  Her hands are bigger than mine, so they're a little long on me:



So far, Gloss worked really well for these.  The pattern calls for sport weight, and Gloss is fingering/sock weight, so I just cast on 52 stitches instead of 48 and added a rib at the outer edge of the hand.  We'll see how the yarn wears. 

But because the gauge is smaller, I kind of feel like I'd like a proportionally bigger cable.  Well, next time!  (This is my second pair, and I wear last year's all the time.  I think I'm just going to keep making them.)

The color is gorgeous, and I love the cables.  What a thoughtful thing to do for your sister!  (I bet she'll still get plenty of use from them this season before it warms up!)

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Thanks!  I think I'll make another pair for myself with the rest of the skein (it only used 1/2 a skein).  It's certainly going to be cold *here* (Illinois) for a while longer! (Yes, that's snow in the background out the window)
