I printed out the pattern, only to find that I didn't have the right size DPN's, so I perused another pattern book I had for a similar style and even knitted a tension square (something I have never done!) to make sure it would work out with the one skein I had.
It worked but only by the skin of my teeth! I really didn't want to have to buy another skein as it would make them rather pricey for what they really are. This is how much yarn I had left over:
Probably not more than 16 inches! I made a note of the pattern as I went along so am wondering if it constitutes as mine now and if so, can I post it as a tutorial? Any thoughts?
I love the fact that they are different colours - sure to get some comments about odd gloves...
Tomorrow, I'm going on a jolly outing to meet with a lovely friend... I can't wait!
