What I liked about this project:
- Interesting and quick to knit
- Such a soft and comfortable end result
- I still LOVE this yarn
What I learned from this project:
- Sometimes I need to go through the project directions and make them my own at the beginning
What I'd do differently next time:
- Finish while it's still cold enough in my house to need to wear them (But not worries....it will be cold again next winter!!)
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Handpaint Worsted in color 035 (Inca Red)
Pattern: Velvet Curtain Gauntlets
Needles: Size 6
Amount of yarn: 1.75 oz (Less than 1/2 skein)
Finished size: 6.75 x 3.125 inches (length and width of gauntlet)
Pattern modifications: Cast on 2 extra repeats of pattern (42 stitches)
These seem to stay put pretty well. Since they have a thumb hole, but not really a thumb, I can push them back and use them as wrist-warmers when needed.
I might still have enough of this yarn left to knit another pair.
