I have decided that I need these
. It's cold here, and I want something I can wear shoveling the walk, or walking to the park holding hot coffee!
Now, I tried casting on 44 stitches of KP WoTA on size 4......and wow, no way would that be snug on my wrist. So, I thought to myself......I have one skein each of some sock yarns, it'll be funny w/selfstriping yarn, but why not try?? So I am ribbing the fingering weight yarn on 0s, and I'll knit the rest w/ones (I just used ones to make my freya socks, which I finished btw!
). Now, this is snug going over my hand, but hugs my wrist juuuuust right. I am a tad concerned changing like this, but when I used this same yarn, and 2s to make the HFM fingerless, they came out WAY too big for me, and the individual fingers on these look like similar stitch counts ( at tad more if I'm remembering right) so they should fit my piggies.
Brings me to the question - does this mean I am just knitting loosely, or that I have itty-bitty hands, or is it both??
edit - you can see the glittens in pics here
