Rannoch: FO

Rannoch: FO, originally uploaded by hannah8ball.

Loved the pattern, the cables look great and I think this will be a big hit with the recipient. I ended up not doing the thumbs because I still have a laddering problem and didn't want my gift to look so much like homemade. I used the thumb technique as described in the pattern for Handwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

I really like these mitts, I must say, I'm having a hard time wrapping these up. I'm sure I'll be casting on a pair for myself just as soon as I finish all my gift knits.

Speaking of, my stats are as follows:

Waschloths: 5 done, 1 shipped, 1 on the needles (6 of 11 completed)
Mitts: 1 pair done, 1/2 done on a second pair, patterns picked out for the last 2 pairs. (3/8 completed.)

Not too bad for the end of November.

How are you doing on your gift knits?

I love the cables. They're just glowing in that yarn. What yarn is it?

They look beautiful! Great job on the picture. It's hard to get that detail on something knit in a dark color. I'm sure they will be well received!
