I need a shorter knitting project. I need a break from the sweater I've been (not) working on for the last several weeks. So, to knitty.com I go (of course).

These are designed to show off handspun, though I can just as easily see them in malabrigo. For my part, I just bought some undyed, and somewhat vaguely described "domestic wool" roving this morning. How fortuitous, no? I do love the colorway they used here, but I'm feeling like I'll go purple. Yes. I don't often make single ply yarns, either, so this might be a nice change, and anyway, a more complex yarn would just get lost in this pattern.

The construction looks super simple, just some sideways cables and a bind off for the thumbholes. I love big, squishy cables like these; so much bang for your buck, effort-wise. And the ravelry reviews seem overwhelmingly positive for this project.

It is decided. I'll report back.
