I finished my Natalya Gauntlet Wristwarmers today (there is a link to the free pdf file on this page, on the right hand side, under "free patterns"). I made the mitt version from yarn in my stash (Cascade 220). I've made several wristwarmers, and this pattern is my favorite. I learned to cable without a cable needle, which made these a really easy, fun knit. There are several sites for learning cabling without a cable needle, but this is the one that worked best for me. If you knit and have never tried cables, consider giving them a go, because they make for fun knitting.

I also wanted to share my favorite knitting how-to site -- Amy has free little videos you can watch on just about any technique you can imagine.
