yay! something for me! I really want to start knitting more for Grant and I - I love knitting for others, but there is always a birthday or holiday to make something for someone. There will be a few more store-bought gifts, but I think that is just fine. These are really great. I was all about the Toast pattern without the thumb hole, but then I saw jenni's and started thinking about how cold my hands get while I type - gotta have the thumb hole! So happy with the results! Although I am starting to get frustrated that my stitches are uneven when I knit. I keep thinking it will get better with time, but it doesn't seem to be improving - any advice??

Bottom line - these are awesome. you should make 'em!

pattern - toasty free!
yarn - cascade yarns 220 heathers in grey (8401)
...also detailed on my ravelry page

they look awesome! your stitches look perfect to me! I almost sent some yarn to you, with your early present, so you could make some toasts for yourself but then I freaked about picking the right color so I didn't send any, good thing, since you were already on it!

I love fingerless gloves. They come in so handy. Love the neutral gray color....works with everything. And I agree that you should make yourself something fun. Knitters never keep anything they make when they are the ones who realize the amount of effort it takes to make it.

Your stitches look pretty even to me. If you throw, you might want to try picking or vice versa to see if that changes the tension or evenness of your knitting.
