*(editted) i knitted the mate this morning ! so now i have a PAIR !
i did not finish my sock. i did not knit much on my sweater. i did knit a glove ! ... and i still have to knit the mate.
i used some unknown stash wool, worsted wt, koolaid dyed. i followed the instructions in ann budd's _ handy book of patterns_. though it was fiddly, it was fun. the fiddly part was knitting fingers with 8" metal dpns.
so, the fingers fit fine, but the hand part is a wee bit baggy. hmmm .... first glove(s). i will knit the mate the same. i'll still wear these 'cause they're cool. i'd really like to knit some at a much finer gauge, but wasn't ready to tread into the unknown on more stitches and rounds.
