Hobo Gloves

My current knitting project, aka fingerless gloves:

Hobo Gloves

I'm pretty happy with how they're turning out so far--isn't this colorful yarn fun? It's a slow-going project (I started a few months ago), and will probably be done just in time for next winter! I've learned a few new skills with these gloves, including knitting in the round with double pointed needles, a new increase method, and a new binding off method. Next skill I need to learn is cabling. After all these years, I still haven't attempted it. I don't know why, but the cables just intimidate me.

  1. Is that Noro yarn? Pretty colors. Nice thumbs too. If you can do those, you can do cables. Try it, you'll wonder why you didn't sooner!
