whee! i've learned cabling (three FO's + a WIP)

it makes me feel so good about myself, to know i can learn new knitting skills :)

i've made knitty's "fetching", a glittery hat, a pair of mittens + the first glove of knitty's "carpathia" -

well, the 'one size' from the pattern turned out to be too big for me, so in the winter i will wear them over a pair of mittens :)

these are also too big for me - so i will wear a pair of knitty's "voodoo" underneath, which i've made out of the same yarn.

here's a hat (duh!) - i found the pattern on knittinghelp.com, it's called "bidda's headhugger". i've used some glitter thread along with the yarn.

and, last but definitely not least, the first glove of knitty's "carpathia" :D thanks to everyone who helped me out with the pattern. still haven't heard from the designer about the gauge, but it turned out great anyhow.

i'm very proud of myself for having accomplished this - i've never knit any gloves before & i've hardly done any lace. knitting gloves has always been this 'thing' for me - as my mother used to tell me when i was a child, that knitting them would be very hard, i sort of decided that i would make a pair when i grow up. so now i can (soon enough, unless i get serious 'second glove-syndrome') put one more thing off my list of things to accomplish in life :)
