(Technical difficulties on the post I promised using the remnant cotton - while I try to sort that one out, here's a look at the next project off my needles mid August at the cottage.)
Pattern: "Cabled Gloves" by Veronique Avery
Source: Knitting 24/7
Yarn: St. Denis Nordique
Colour: #5858 Red
Start: August 11 Finish: August 24, 2011
"Nouveau Gloves" was an absolute snap. They are shorter, less patterned and yet also use twisted stitches to create those adorable tiny cables up the backs of the hands and around the cuff. So I once again fired up Glenna C.'s recommended technique for doing so without the use of a cable needle and I just flew along!
Once the great experience of knitting them is done they feel good on the hand and I think their classic red colour will make them work with anything - other knits for sure or any coat I own.
I can definitely see revisiting this pattern but more so, looking into using St. Denis yarn again ASAP!
Once these were done I moved from woolly red stockinette, to bright apple green mercerized cotton - still from Knitting 24/7 but a real departure from these gloves in every other respect.
