So here are my version of the SnB wristwarmers.

I changed this pattern in the following ways:
- by using the cable named "claw" instead of the vine called for.
- I also picked up and knit through the back of three of the body stitches when it came time to finish the thumb as I wanted it to be 16 stitches around vs. the 13 called for.
- I chose quite a lot of ribbing over the hand instead of another cable repeat so that they would stay snug over the hand.



I used Noro Silk Garden color #50 which I liberally chopped up to rid the gloves of the dreaded acid yellow in the middle of each skein and voila!  I love them and will take them on their first camping trip this weekend!

thanks 'summer loves pi'! Yeah, Noro colors are fab - I am just NOT a yellow kinda gal and since this pattern doesn't use a whole ball for each you have room to play with the colors.

They held up well for the camping weekend and now I have four people clambering for their own pair!  Funny how that works.
