Just the other day, one of our customers was on the phone and gave us the greatest idea: Kidsilk Haze and Manos mittens!! She said that the Kidsilk Haze provides just enough softness and sheen to the kettle dyed Manos - and the results are incredible. It took us about 5 minutes to pick out some complimentary colors - and about 2 days for me to knit them up! We decided on fingerless gloves instead of mittens because i wanted to be able to use them at the computer. In fact, i'm wearing them right now - as i type!! And, of course, they are great for giving Wiley a pet on the neck.
I did block the first one right after i finished it. The resultant glove is much, much softer, but a bit bigger my hands are pretty small. That said, i would highly recommend blocking yours handwash in warm water, but suggest using a US 7 needle if you have small hands. For larger hands, the US 8 should be just fine.
