Chunky superfine alpaca. (soooo soft...) 5.5mm needles. 32 stitches. 2x2 rib. WOrk in round to thumb, then back and forth for about 8 or 10 rows, join again in round (this creates the thumb hole...) another couple of inches for the hand, and done. One ball (around 100 metres or less) makes a pair, and it's one evening in front of the TV. Hoo-wah! (or an hour's basketball practice for most of one. I'll complete the other one at swimming tonight...)
These are in the colours of the University of Ottawa - attended by my sitter's daughter. Both her and her mom will be getting a pair. (School spirit and all that...) Depending on the time I have left, I may make some with a thumb gusset, but for (almost) instant gratification - this is the one.
