Who knew gloves would be so fast and easy?!?!

1 ball of Koigu from my SP and a pattern from Knit Scene magazine, some US3's, about 4 hours total of knitting spread out over a week and voila! Cast on last Weds night at my knitting group and will be showing them off at that very group this evening!

Yay, you made a pair of gloves! I love working in the round, but everybody I talk to seems to be scared of dpns.

What is this "Koigu" everybody keeps talking about? I've seen some awesome self-striping stuff made with it, but I've never seen it North of the 49th.

White Rabbit:  Funnily enough, it appears that Koigu is a Canadian yarn: http://www.koigu.com/page1.htm  It looks like you can request a list of stores that sell it via the site.

Those are gorgeous, and Koigu is so warm and soft!  I want to make a pair myself now.

They look great.  I love Koigu as well, I am working on the Charlottes Web shawl right now.  But yes you should be proud those look amazing.
