I made these with yarn dyed by Scout J. I love purple - and these are for me! I loved them so much I made them, wore them to the movies where I think I lost one, and made another to keep my pair. I don't have enough yarn to lose another so I'll be paying closer attention! I added an extra cable round at the top and did a regular bind off. I like to cover more of my fingers - it's supposed to be a high of -4 today here in Wisconsin - so I'd say good instincts:) Keep on Fetching!
