some time ago I purchased about two-thirds of a mile of hot pink sparkly sock yarn, because knitpicks was having a sale on red and pink yarns. then knitpicks got hacked, failed to tell anyone that their information was compromised, and now I’m boycotting them forever, so this is My Last Knitpicks Order
anyway! so that’s a fuckton of yarn, right? I used about a third of one skein (I have five) to make these guys
they are p simple mitts, baby cables on the backs of the hands and plain ribbing on the palms, with a little gusset thumb in stockinette stitch
I did not take notes while making the first one, though, and thus the second glove is very stubbornly four rows shorter than the first. I think I fucked up the thumb gusset. that’s kind of how I do.
sparkly pink fucking mitts dammit

I like seeing paper plans for projects. It’s like seeing the back—a little reminder of the process that goes into even simple bits of stitching.
