I made another thing(s).


Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk (worsted weight, 55/22/23 alpaca/silk/merino; discontinued), color Allspice.
Pattern: Vancouver Fog
Needles: US#7.

That is Alex's lovely hand above. I made these for her from the same yarn I used for her hat and cowl last winter. Great pattern, fast to knit*, impressive result. I have plans to make myself a pair from the same yarn in my stash but in blue. These are the BEST fingerless mitts I have ever knit — I loved making them and I will love wearing mine.

* "Fast to knit", assuming the knitters does not miscross cables — and who among us has NOT miscrossed a cable or three? — or lose her place in the pattern. I ended up rewriting the pattern to demarcate the cable panel from the stockinette portion, after which I did not lose my place again.

    Very pretty! Love the cables. I can see where this would be a much used pattern! Have a great weekend, Kat.

    Beautiful! I just went and grabbed the pattern. Cuz I only have a zillion patterns for fingerless gloves and obviously need another one…
    Though this one would be perfect for some of the ton of alpaca fiber I need to spin up.

    Pretty! I actually like those better than Stulpen, which I have made several times.

    I refuse to discuss cables after knitting those slouchy hats. Don’t ask. You don’t wanna know. /sigh
