Needles: Size 2 dp's
Yarn: Fingering Weight (50 gr.)
These mitts were really fun to knit. The pattern is extremely well-written. I had difficulty putting this project down. No SMS (single mitt sydrome) with this project. I knit on my lunch hour and an hour or so in the evening and this project took me about 1 - 1 1/2 weeks to complete. The yarn was purchased just a short time ago when I attended the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival. Fiber content is merino and tencel.
Here's a close-up of the mitt. It appears to be cables but isn't. Not sure why Blogger is cutting off part of the pic when it is saved, but you get the idea.
I love the cuffs. The cable look is achieved with K2tog and YO's.
My "Beginner Knitting Class" came to a close this past week. I had the maximum of eight women and they were all so very much fun. Already, they are asking me to teach another class and telling me what they would like. I also may soon be starting "private group" lessons in someone's home along the line of a "Tupperware Party". This evolved because a previous student was disappointed that I taught only the one class this fall and the next one is not till January. She wants to knit cowls in time for holiday presents.
I have several other knitting projects in the works. One just needs buttons sewn on. I've also started the "Spiralucious Cowl". It's almost completed and I just started it yesterday. I'll be knitting the matching mitts next. The customer service from Anne Hanson at "Knit Spot" was fantastic. Her patterns are beautiful and I'll definitely be purchasing patterns from her again.
