Athena Fingerless Gloves - Cuff
Zen Yarn Garden Superwash Sock, 100% Superwash Merino, 2-ply tight twist fingering weight. The colorway is amazing, with beautiful, subtle variations that the photo does not do justice to. I actually had the first glove almost finished, but when I tried it on I realized that I would have to do a fair bit of customization to get a reasonable fit. I have very slender wrists, but my hands are fairly broad. So I took some measurements, noted the gauge, and ripped. My first modification was to cast on only 52 stitches for the cuff, rather than 60. Now that I have finished the cuff, I need to increase the number stitches. I also am planning on starting the thumb gusset earlier than the pattern calls for.
