I wanted to thank everyone who participated. This is my first KAL and it was a lot of fun. Such variety of color and patterns and all so pretty.

This is my second pair in the Jade DK - Same Baby Fan pattern. I made a matching cowl in WW. (I'll post the pic of that over under the "Old Shale Smoke Ring" topic.)

O.K. I give up - I copy and pasted the line that says "Image Source" several times and it's not showing up. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks.

You need to go for the line "BB Code" rather than "HTML img". (The text will start with img in square brackets.)

Your mitts look great.

Thanks! (Not sure which one I finally copied that made the pic show up, but I thought it wasn't the right one.) I'll get the hang of it eventually.

A while back I printed the pattern for the pink cabled fingerless gloves your link shows. They're so pretty! But, being a beginner and finding charts pretty complicated to follow, I thought there was a mistake in the chart...I started knitting them and it appeared to me that you should omit (I think it was rows 9 and 10 of the chart) because otherwise the cable comes too close to the previous one. Am I mistaken about that? It's quite possible I wasn't reading the chart correctly! Anyway, I ended up not finishing them but I would like to make them because I just love anything with cables!


I've just cast these on again and I think you're right. This is an 8 row pattern. Rows 9 and 10 on the chart are the same as rows 1 and 2 so should be omitted. I rarely ever work from charts if there is a written alternative so I didn't notice this the first time I did them.

Yvonne, THANKS! That's what I thought.

So far, I much prefer written instructions to charts too. I don't seem to be able to read charts very well at all. That one threw me. Maybe I'll try the pattern again now.

Actually, I've frogged this now because it was obvious that I hadn't enough yarn but I also altered the pattern because the cufffs were very long.

Also as I have smallish hands I cast on fewer stitches. So I cast on 44sts, did 26 rows to the start of the thumb gusset shaping and only increased to 12sts for gusset.

Also only had 6 sts after pattern to first marker.

There's also a mistake on row 1. The k4. should be k2, otherwise the cable is over 12 stitches not 10. Row 5 is correct and the cable is 10 sts.

Hope this helps.
