Here's the nitty gritty:
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease in Heather gray
Needles: DPN size 6
Size: I made them 5 1/2" before I worked the thumb opening.I had my guy try them on for a quick photo shoot before leaving for work...They fit great! (I know the neighbors have to be wondering why I'm always taking pictures of people and things outside at strange hours. Oh well, gotta make use of that natural light!)

Here's the skinny:
Mods: I knit 1 extra repeat after I finished the thumb opening.
Yarn: Cascade 220 Paints Londonberry, used just 1/2 of a skein.
Needles: size 7 double points
This is the palm side of them. The extra repeat made them just a little bit longer, covering up some more of my fingers.
My husband mentioned that he thought they were very nice. Always looking for a reason to knit...I asked him if he thought he might want a pair...not with cables of course...but you know I was fishing to see how much he liked them. I said, "If you want a pair you should say something and I'll knit you a pair, if not then I won't. I don't want to knit them if you really don't want them." So he said, "I'm not saying anything." Well. I guess that said it all. Anyways, I really like them. They make knitting outside in the cooler temps a possibility.

So today I asked the Lord to help me see hidden roses throughout my day. It was very enjoyable this rose hunt. I found myself aware of things that I normally would have bypassed in my daily routine.
Cereal bowls all lined up on the counter ready for a busy morning before heading out the door to class.
My kitchen window early this morning before the cereal bowls were filled and while the house was still quiet. The crickets chirping outside and fresh tomatoes on the window sill...summer is still lingering.
Brand new lessons to study for CBS. Today was our first day. On the left is my notebook and on the right is John Samuel's. He will have homework each week (just like his big sister) and he is so excited he can hardly wait.
Some crochet thread we wound into a ball for a friend who was going to Russia. It was one of several we got ready for her to take for the locals to use. She never made it by to pick it up in her last minute rush. I was going to put it away and then was reminded to pray for her...I decided to leave it out so that each time I see it sitting there I'll whisper a prayer for her protection and her safety.
