One down...

... one to go!



(Note: If you are right-handed, it is pretty darn hard to get a pic of your own right hand... especially if the camera's button is all the way to the top right! So, only one not so great photo.)

This is the first Rib-and-cable mitt from IK (see last post for link). It came out slightly longer than I wanted, but I think my mom's hands are bigger than mine, so hopefully I will be all good. Obviously, I am not following the pattern exactly. I decided to use a variagated yarn and to skip the contrasting colors. It is also not a DK weight yarn so I have been modifying a little for size, too. Once I finish Number 2, I'll write up all the changes I made.

I adore these colors and love the single cable down the back of the hand. I may have a hard time giving these away at Christmas! :-)

(And let's all hope I don't fall prey to Second Sock Syndrome and finish the left one soon!)

Oh! Very inspiring! I'm working on a knit legwarmer right now. I'm not worried about the 1st one, since it's almost done. I never seem to finish the second one, though.
