What to make?
Im still a pretty new knitter-I just dyed a 220 yard skein of KP WOTA- it came out really nice. I can't decide what to make with it? I haven't tried socks, mittens or cabling, so I'm leaning toward something like that. Any suggestions?

Fetching from the summer 2006 issue of Knitty is a worsted-weight fingerless glove pattern. It's pretty easy if you're used to working with DPNs. http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html

The Irish Hiking Scarf is a great intro to cable knitting...though it does get to be a little mind-numbing.

These are the mittens I'm making with WOTA (double stranded) right now. Very simple

Julie- are you doing the mitten in the round?

What size is the scarf when finished? O hwait- I only have 220yards- unless I dyed more, but I would guess it won't look the same.

I like the gloves too- but I'm not sure I would get much use from them in SoCal. hmmmmm... but maybe a nice gift.

Yes, in the round Also, my IHS has been on the needles for like 8 months (hello, got bored, it was spring, so I put it away) ...anyway, my skein is only 200 yds, and it does appear that it will turn out long enough. But, you know, it's for a 6yo, so length isn't crucial.

Actually -- here was my process....I cast on 24 sts and started working 2x2 ribbing for a few inches. Just like a sock. :D Then I looked on the Internet until I found a pattern that called for 24 sts. Actually, this one called for 25, so I increased one on my first stockinette row. :D Since I already had ribbing, I just followed the instructions from after it tells you to knit the 5 straight stockinette rows. (sort of. ) I just followed the instructions as written, but knitting the "purl" rows.
