Thanks Wynnie! I loved that sock yarn so much. I had gotten it on sale at a fiber fair last year for 2 dollars a skein! Now, it's almost impossible to find, so I was lucky with that deal.
When I started making a pair of socks with the yarn, I thought, "This yarn is too pretty to hide under my pants and shoes." :thinking: I decided to make wrist-warmers instead.
I searched and searched, but could only find a vintage glove pattern for sock-weight yarn. (It was in a VERY old Workbasket magazine.) I made some changes to the pattern, and stopped knitting before making the fingers.
I really like them. The thing I like most about them is the way they make a "piano keyboard" design every once in a while. I'm a pianist, so it felt like "destiny".
