Warm and Cosy

Cold, cold fingers. Cold, cold prairie. Cold, cold wind.

Why are there no warm, warm mittens in my collection?

Pop of Colour

Colourwork mittens with a liner. Oh, my hands are so cosy! And I’m so excited by how well my knitting skills have come along that I was able to do these without much drama. There is a mistake or two in one section of the first mitten that I meant to redress with duplicate stitch, but I was so excited to knit the liners in that I forgot to do it first.

These were one of two Ravellenic Games projects – knit within the time constraints of the Winter Olympics.

Pattern: Nor’Easter Mittens
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Sport in Bare and Baltic Heather, Fleece Artist leftovers in an unknown berry colour for liner

    Gorgeous. And I know what you mean about a minimal amount of drama while trying a new knitterly thing. I just discovered stretchy cast on and was so pleased with how quickly I mastered it. It saved a hat I was knitting from an alpaca/wool blend which made a lousy ribbing without the special cast on. I had to reknit the hat but the pain was worth it in the end.
