This Evangeline pattern is super fast and super fun (and looks super awesome). I added a pattern repeat to the short version, and reversed the cables on the right hand so that the two mirror each other.
The yarn is very soft and also very washable, which is good because these are going to a vet hospital employee. :)
The cable pattern was super easy to memorize, easy to do with the cabling-without-a-needle method, and each only took me a day.
Pattern: Evangeline by Michelle Szeghalmi-Shirley
Yarn: Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere in Wine

Meanwhile, on the couch, I've started a massive Christmas project for someone who shall remain nameless. But is a dude. The only other hint is that it is made with this yarn from Holland that cost 10c a skein back in the long-long ago.
