I finished my cabled wrist warmers/fingerless gloves today! That's them in the jug, having a good soak. They kept floating to the top, so I put the sieve in there with a glass in it to weight it down. It worked perfectly :) The yarn (Andes by Debbie Bliss) bled quite a bit, but I think most dark colours do. I used a skien and bit, I only needed 7 grams of the second skien! Not to worry, I've got a project lined up for the leftover yarn already! The pattern is the cable stitch wrist warmers from the Textured Knits book in this collection. Though if not for Knitty Gritty I'd never have managed it! It's not that the pattern is badly written, it's just that I'm inexperienced. But I'm getting there! Now that I've done these, I think I could follow any glove/mitten pattern, as now I understand how they are constructed :) They're now laid out to dry, so I should have photos soon. As well as photos of me in my finished dress!
So now I only have three knitting projects on the go! The rosebud socks, lacy scarf, and the Lauriel cardigan! :)
