Stolen while in Vancouver, BC :(

Using #4 square DPNs

Used JSSBO for the palm BOs, but should have used it for the thumb BOs too. Before blocking it was a super tight fit, so blocking really helped loosen it up and now they fit perfect.

Due to a fatal misreading of the pattern notes and failing at schematic logic I bought the wrong width ribbon - 1/4 inch instead of 3/4 inch. I spent a long time agonizing over being limited to such skinny ribbon too since all the ribbons I wanted were thicker. Once I got back home and actually tried to match the photo for how I was lacing them up I realized my error and I really can’t live with the too-skinny yarn. I’m not even sure the buttons I got have an opening big enough for the thicker ribbon I want (I liked the styling of having the ribbon threaded through the button and showing on the right side), so I may need to get new buttons too. Ugh. Back to Jo-Ann’s in the morning.

5/8” ribbon seemed to be the magic number. I got black velvet ribbon - the satin just looked too cheap and I couldn’t find the right red/purple in the right width. I also had to get new buttons because the ribbon wouldn’t fit through the buttons I got before. I decided on regular shank buttons and I just sewed the buttons onto the ribbon like the pattern says. They look great! Fancy, but not too girly.
