And it was a gas
A pair of Fetching wrist warmers for Mothers' Day. They knit up pretty fast, very gratifying when you're deep in the middle of bigger projects. Having heard they tend to come out pretty big, I used a finer yarn, Sean Sheep 'Flinders' and 3.75mm needles. 'Flinders' seems to be a pretty close copy of Paton's Zhivago. Not sure how hard wearing it will be, and it seems to pull threads a bit easily. But it is very soft and shiny.
I put an extra plain round in between the cable rounds to lengthen them just a bit. I also did a plain cast-off instead of the picot because I didn't want it to flare so much.
