Yesterday I finished one of my Vancouver Fog fingerless mitts (or, as my friend Jennifer calls them, "bum gloves").
This has been a really fun project so far. I was worried the cable pattern was going to be too complicated, but it wasn't bad at all. I just used a row counter and all was good. The next glove will be slightly more challenging because I'm going to mirror the cables, but there aren't written instructions for doing that - just a general guidelines to switch a right cross with left cross, etc. But, I'm sure I can handle it. I think I might be knitting multiple pairs of these gloves for Christmas gifts, so maybe I will take the time to just write out the instructions for the right glove so I don't have to concentrate too much while I knit it. (In fact, I wonder if anyone on Ravelry has already done this? I should check).
I'm also pleasantly surprised with the yarn I chose. I bought it because I loved the fact that I got to "meet" the sheep where the wool came from, but I was worried that it would end up being kind of itchy yarn, which I usually avoid. No so. It is actually very soft and lovely. I can already tell that I bought WAY too much, so I might make a matching hat or something to go with the mitts. I wonder if anyone on Ravelry has written out that pattern as well? lol. It seems that you can find anything on Ravelry sometimes! If not, I'm sure I can wing it.
