Cozy cable confidence…
Isn’t this cable pattern just lovely? I know these look very narrow on the needles, but all that ribbing makes for a wonderfully elastic piece. I like knowing they’ll be snug around my wrists because that’s the part that always gets cold for me.
These really do manage a great combination of cozy and elegant. They would make lovely gifts, but I plan on keeping them for myself. The great thing about Arlene’s pattern, though, is that you can get TWO pairs from one skein–one to give and one to keep. That’s my kind of knitting–everybody wins.
Even with two balls of yarn (a must for two mitts on one needle), this is a highly portable project. The only part I think I wouldn’t pull out at a meeting or in public would be the end of the gusset where you must move stitches to waste yarn–I’d only do that in the peace and quiet of my own home.
That will be the next segment, so you’ll get to see if I stick to my tactics. I’ve got several long committee meetings coming up this week…I might get cocky.
Lucky for you, that always makes for entertaining reading.
