Yarn: Trekking XXL colorway #51.
Pattern: Fortissima "Socka-To-Me" Gloves, from Skacel, with lots of minor modifications so they fit my hands exactly. I like these gloves, but because of the nylon in the yarn, they are a little hard. Perhaps they will last longer, though.
In other news, the Lamb's Pride Moderne Log Cabin now measures about 30" by 39", with lots of yarn left to go. Now, does this qualify for Resolution #6? It's not a sweater, but it does have many colors, and it certainly is just as much knitting as a sweater. Hmmm.. a moral dilemma, if I've ever seen one.I really like the texture of this blanket, although I must admit that I get very sick of knitting entire skeins of one color of garter stitch at this point.
Finally, I cast on for the sock pattern that came in the Louet sock-dyeing kit. So far, so good. I tried knitting these on my 6" bamboo Size 2s, but the needles are too long; they kept getting caught in the sweater I was wearing. So I went back to these 5-inch-long bendable pastic needles, but I think I'll try to pick up a set of 5-inchers in bamboo. WEBS has 4-inch-long size 2 "glove needles" in recycled ebony that I eyed for a bit this week, but the set is $15 and I just couldn't justify that much.
