I took one glance at these mini gloves, and now I have to make it when I get the yarn!
It takes only one skein and a couple of days! Now that IS instant gratification!

Here's the site: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html

I really like the green color she uses, but i'm wondering if a "k2tog bind-off would look nicer" instead of the traditional bind-off.

Who's in??  Cheesy

Oh, I fell for these wristwarmers as soon as I saw them yesterday! I can't wait to make them too. I've been shopping for yarn on the internet tonight. Were you going to use the Debbie Bliss cashmerino? I was considering substituting Karabella's Aurora 8. I was afraid the cashmerino might not wash and wear as well considering it is going on the hands. I do like that green color she uses. I wish I didn't have to wait for yarn to be shipped to me. I'm anxious to start these.   Grin

i wish i could make these.  i've never knitted any type of glove or handwarmers because i'm terrified of double pointed needles.  and cables.

my mom says there is nothing to worry about.
i may just go for it and give them a whirl.
they're too lovely to pass up!!!

hm, try magic loop then. i also hate dpn-s, but magic loop is so simple and gives same results:))

about fetching, i so want them! and i have tons of lone skeins in my shash that would be perfect for this:)

I had to laugh a little when I read how you said magic loop is so simple. I've been knitting for quite a few years now and tried magic loop for the first time last night because I needed size 13 dpn and didn't have them. I ended up calling it nightmare loop because I found it so cumbersome and it stretched my stitches out. I know a lot of people like that method though. It's worth trying.  For me I'll stick to dpn  Grin

well, it stretches the stitches at the end of the every half-round (is that a word?Smiley), but i always pull the first stitch tighter then others, so it is okay, i also never pull the cord out in the same place twice, so no laddering there:) i tried dpns few times, but i just cant put my head around it. they keep falling out, making weird holes in my stitches, i can't join in round normally on them, i  can't hold them normally, i poked myself many times with them... i'm just anti-tallented for dpns, and with magic loop i only have one pair of needles. it probably takes a lot of practice, but for now, i find ML simpler. for now. i will master dpns eventually:D i hope:D

Ooh I started this yesterday morning on my carpool ride into work...
I have just a little left to do on the first one...these go fast and are FUN to knit. I may just break them out while I'm waiting for Dressy Bessy to come onstage tonight at the bar!

I'm using a random dark brown skein, I suspect that it's Encore. Unfortunately there's no room in my budget for cashmerino, but I have 20-some odd skeins of wool-blends lying around my apartment.

I decided to go ahead and start with some yarn I already have in my stash. I'll just make another pair when my aurora 8 yarn comes in.  Cheesy

I am going to knit these too!  I know I have some sort of lonely skein sitting in the stash waiting to become this project.  Time for some stash diving!  Yay

how is everyone doing on these? What yarns are you using? I am just past the thumbhole round on the first one. It looks good so far. Smiley This is a real cute wristwarmer pattern.  I'm going slow because I seem to only knit a few rounds at a stretch (limited time). I'm using Red Heart soft in navy that I've had in my stash for a long long time. I had to use size 4 needles to get the gauge  Shocked. I've never done a thumbhole thats been like this one where you pick up the live stitches from above and below the waste yarn on two needles. Seems like a neat idea though. What type of cast on did you use to start with? I used a cable cast on.
