I stayed up perhaps a bit too late last night, but finished the mittens.
Rowan RYC Cashsoft 4 Ply (57% wool, 33% microfiber, 10% cashmere)
Colors 429 (Redwood) and 433 (Cream)
US 0 (2.0mm) Knitpicks Harmony dpns
This was a great pattern, easy to memorize but fun and soothing at the same time. While the yarn was maybe not the best pick for stranded knitting (it’s very soft and slippery!) it makes an extremely luxurious pair of mittens.
I’m working on another pair of luxury-fiber hand coverings.
This is a pair of the Wine and Roses Mitts from the 2006 issue of Interweave Knits, knit in some of my own handspun bombyx silk (dyed by Chasing Rainbows, “Moody Blues,” if you want to know.) They’ve been patiently waiting their return to the needles for some time now.
I’m wrapping and shipping gifts out today, so I gathered all the knitties I’ve finished so far together for a group photo.
All for now!
