So, I have tried this mitten pattern before, it didn’t work so well. However, I found a new pattern for the yarn, and figured out why that yarn didn’t work, so I decided it was time to work the right pattern in the right yarn.
The pattern was a great break after working on fingering weight yarn and tiny needles. The knitting went really quickly, and I managed to knit the thumbs during a conference call.
I am excited to wear these this fall, they are a bit too loose of a gauge to work in the dead of an Ontario winter, but they will be warm and wooly (thanks to the alpaca, non-felty) through the fall.
Project Name: Second Try Mittens
- Knit two at a time, cuff down.
Feedback: The pattern works much better when you think about the type of yarn. Like most Knitty patterns it is a good pattern, however it is annoying to have to transcribe the patterns into a word processor to be able to get it on a minimal number of pages.
Re-Knit?: Probably not, unless my mom actually steals them, as she has been threatening.
