Project Details: I did this as part of the Ravelry group on using up stash sport and sock yarn. They pick the patterns and you just work on the ones you want. I've been meaning to do one but haven't done it until now. I started on May 2nd and finished today May 24th. I could have done these in a day if I had nothing else on the needles. They knit up really really fast! I used Wayward's sport yarn from the Sherlock Holmes club. I probably used around 150 yards. I could make another pair out of the yarn I still have.
The only change I made to the pattern was to do fewer repeats on the thumb (because I have short thumbs). Otherwise it is exactly as written.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
