They were a relatively quick knit - not too hard - just a bit fiddly with the fingers. It is hard to get a clean pickup between the fingers but overall I really like how they turned out. I used the variegated yarn to make a little interesting stripe section on the cuff. I really like how they turned out.
Due to life's curveballs, yarn purchases are not in the cards right now so I'm finding ways to knit through my meager stash. I cast on an Estelle cardigan for my mom - she picked it out from a bunch of patterns I sent her. The yarn went from Ramen noodles back into lovely sweater work - I'm already at the part of the top down where you put the sleeves on waste yarn.
Since I can't just have one project on needles I'm going to see what else I can cast on with the yarn lying around my craft closet.
