FO friendly hands

Got this yarn from one of my best friends, and I wanted to knit something that was very usable, not something that got tossed in the closet and never used. Since I am always cold on my hands during fall and winter I use fingerless gloves a lot, I even use them inside, so I decided that that’s what I would make. I have liked the pattern for a long time, and I think the yarn is a perfect match for this pattern. I have skinny wrists, so my only changes was knitting them on 3mm needles, and I didn’t block them, cause I was afraid they would be wider. Pattern was very easy to follow. I did suffer a case of second sock syndrome, so the second one was kind of a drag, but I am glad I kicked my butt and finished these. Aren’t they pretty? I think they look a bit gladiator’ish, don’t you? Gladiator wristies!

They remind me of my friend =)

The yarn is unfortunately discontinued, which is a shame. But if you get your hands on it, try it! Its such a joy to knit with. Doesent split at all, and its soft and solid.
