Woo! I started a second pair in black and white for another cousin. My colorwork already looks so much better, more even...and my increases are neater looking. Hooray! I knit the first one in about a day and a half...and I'm almost done with the first pattern repeat in the second one.

Oh yeah...these ones are shorter! I'm only doing two pattern repeats before starting the thumb gussets, and I started the ribbing immediately after the thumb. I like the fit of these shorter ones better. :thumbsup:

Well I finished this pair! I'm very happy with them and I think my cousin will like them. My other cousin (who received the grey and white pair) hasn't taken them off since ChristmasEve! She loves them, I'm so happy. She even wants another pair in brown. And another cousin is begging for a pair as well.
I'm not sure how many of these I'll actually make--but it is a great little pattern, quick and interesting with a great "wow!" factor. I've gifted other items that were much more complicated, took more time and were more difficult but THIS pattern is the one that got all the attention! :mrgreen:

(pic is a little blurry, but in person the contrast is very sharp)

HamaLee: Maybe I missed it somewhere, but have you resolved the hole issue? These look great! So pretty and they do look incredibly complicated. :notworthy: :notworthy:

Those are really eyecatching. No wonder everyone you made them for and everyone who sees them wants a pair. Beautiful!!

Thanks so much! I found it and she says it's easy so I'm jazzed! Have to finish my sweater first, then off to the LYS. It'll be fun picking out colors. May have to make a pair for myself and my friend with MS.
