EDIT: Thank you all for your suggestions. I plan to knit a couple full hexagons and take them to Tokyo with me when I look for yarn. I shall keep all your suggestions in mind. Thank you again.

So, I've been working for about two months (off and on as I'm a grad student!) on a pair of cabled fingerless gloves w/ a mitten flip-top! The pattern makes a women's medium and I have slightly larger hands so I upped the needle size from 3s to 4s and used a slightly (really slightly) heavier yarn. They fit quite nicely! I had never attempted anything like that (or cabled, or used dpns) so it was an interesting adventure and I feel like I've achieved a lot! I learned quite a few things in one project which is always fun :) (several pics under the cut for those of you on dial-up!!)
