More Cables!

It seems I go for long periods without accomplishing much and then – boom! I finish several things in quick succession. That must apply to Blogging as well, three posts in one week – whoa!

Here are a pair of cabled hand warmers I knit for my DD. She needed something to keep her hands warm while she types (she is a writer and types a lot) and they had to be fine enough to not impede her speed. She can get those fingers flying even on that old antique she loves so much!

These were also a dream to knit on because the yarn is cashmere and silk; Richesse et Soie by Knit One, Crochet Too (which does not appear to be available anymore – oh, waily, waily, waily*)! Yes, she is spoiled. I am allowed to spoil her; my only kid, as she is a good one.

She is also moving 2500 miles away next week so I’m being a bit on the doting side at the moment.

    1. Sorry to take so long to answer you – it ended up requiring a trip to the library as it turns out I knit them from a library book! The pattern for Ashland’s wine colored fingerless gloves with cable came from the book “Holiday Knits; 25 great gifts from stockings to sweaters” by Sarah Lucas and Allison Isaacs, Published by Chronicle Books © 2005, “Tipless Gloves” on Page 80. I found them easy and fun to knit!
