for dividing your stitches onto dpn's (5 is good in this case)
circ 1: divide these stitches evenly between dpn1 and dpn2
circ 2: divide these stitches evenly between dpn3 and dpn4 (I have not seen the pattern, but assume the cable is worked on circ 2- in this case I would not use 5 needles, I would use four and put all the stitches for circ 2 on dpn3.)

Next rnd: Work to last 7 sts of Needle 1, with wy p7, slip these 7 sts to LH needle and p7 with working yarn; work to end of rnd.

rewritten for dpns...Work to last 7 sts of dpn2, with waste yarn p7, slip these 7 sts to LH needle and p7 with working yarn. (This is basically holding the stitches that will become the thumb hole. You purl them with waste yarn to mark the spot, put them back on the lh needle and work them again so you can continue working the rest of the glove without breaking your yarn.)

When you remove the waste yarn you are left with a opening for the thumb.

I have no idea what '5im3w' means...can you tell me what the abbreviations stand for and I can help with the rest...

are you using a set of 4 dpn's or a set of 5?

isisfae: congratulations! Those sure are award winning socks!

I finished mine about a week ago and love them! These are the first pair of wool socks I have knit for myself and was really surprised that they kept my feet toasty warm, but not hot and sweaty. I really think they are a bit too thick to wear with shoes, but they make great house socks.
Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash (4 skeins-Dublin)

That blanket is beautiful! I really admire your patience to knit it... my first attempt at a knitted chevron blanket convinced me that I did not hate crochet as much as I though (and that crochet chevron was much faster than knitted chevron!)

Great job! I am sure it will be snuggled for years to come!

I am loving all the amazing colors this week!
My daughter requested a key hole scarf after seeing the pink wool roving this was spun from. She thought it looked just like cotton candy (I was thinking it looked like fiberglass house insulation)! I am glad she liked it because I was going for a much paler pink and was a bit disappointed with the outcome. I showed her the roving on Tuesday and she asked if I could have her scarf ready by this weekend. Ummm, no.

As always, everyone's yarns are amazing! The colors, the textures, the lovely fo's are making me ohhh and ahhh!

Snowberrylime and I swapped a little roving a few weeks back and she sent me this gorgeous hand-dyed wool- she named it "cinnamon bun".

I am trying my best to finish a pair of socks for my dad before the Secret of the Stole begins. But for me, socks seem to go on and on and on and I tend to catch startitis before they are finished. I managed to fight the urge to spin for 4 days before the call of the roving overpowered me and spun and plied it all in one night. (2ply, 75 yds.)

As soon as the yarn was dry, I cast on for a hat for myself...I now understand the appeal of handspun yarn- I can't believe the difference in feel while knitting. I didn't want it to end!
