I finished Treads just in time to wear them on our bird-watching trip to the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge last week. They're modeled here by Teenage Daughter because I was taking the picture.
I really can't get over these. They have fingers and thumbs! They have lateral braids! They fit! (Are you getting the message that I'm more than a bit excited about these?) One is slightly baggier than the other, so I think I must've added an extra stitch somewhere, probably when I was doing one of the braids. There's a temporary increase there. Or maybe it was in the thumb gusset.
The pattern is Treads, a free download. The yarn is Wool-Ease, a acrylic blend with a little bit of wool in it. It's one of my favorite yarns, but if I'd known that I was going to wear them in actual freezing temperatures, I might've used real wool.
Now I've got to find something else exciting to cast on....I'd forgotten how much fun it is to work on something more ambitious than baby hats!
