The problem is, as I mentioned before, that I'm just beginning to knit. So I choose some beautiful, fuzzy purple yarn, and started on the pattern. (You can find it here, if you're interested.)
About six rows in, I realized a couple of things. First, you won't be able to see the cable, because the yarn is way too fuzzy.
Second, it's possible that it's not a good idea to knit gloves with yarn that Ravelry describes as "Super Bulky" even when it doesn't appear to be any thicker than the Worsted weight acrylic I've been practicing with.
So I took them over to my partner, and said, "Honey, are you sure that you want them in this yarn?"
Yes. Yes she does. She says it's a beautiful color, and warm, and fuzzy, and the cable will be kind of "stealth" kisses and hugs all up the back of her hand.
So I'm working them in the yarn she likes.
I had to wait for a delivery for a couple of hours yesterday, so I got the body of the glove done. (Not that I did it in a couple of hours, that was just added to the time I was going to knit anyway.) I still have to do the thumb, which should be .. ummm .. interesting.
However, the knitting isn't hard; and the other things, that look really hard when you see the description on paper, seem to make much more sense when you're actually doing them.
So that's what I'm going to be doing tonight.
I also found another yarn store, that's quite a bit closer to me and has a lot of really great yarn; but I'll blog about that later. Right now, I want to start knitting!
