Stats: Fetching pattern
One ball each of Debbie Bliss Merino Aran wool in green and blue
Size 6 DPN's
Here is what I learned: 1)Debbie Bliss merino aran only has 76 yards, not 98 like the cashmerino aran. It was on sale at my LYS for $2.40! so I bought 2 balls thinking I'd make one pair of blue and one pair of green. Not! so I compromised and made one pair of blue/green gloves. 2)Read the pattern and follow "as is", not "read into the pattern". I literally for 2 days stressed over the hole for the thumb because I was reading INTO the pattern and not following it as it was written. I woke up at 4 a.m on Thursday after dreaming about it and finally figured it out. Now that is knitting dedication. No one should ever question my commitment to this craft, EVER! 3) I don't like the picot bind off and will not do it on my next pair. So there. I added a few extra rows to the thumb and I will make my next pair longer to cover more of my fingers. Otherwise: Great pattern and very useful fall gloves. Make a pair--I dare ya.
