I decided to go with the pattern for Susie's Reading Mitts paired with the Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock Yarn in Tea Party...and I'm not sure what I'm loving more: the yarn, the pattern, or the yarn and pattern paired! I know I've said it before...but Sunshine Yarns is simply amazing. They make my heart smile.
Despite it being fingering weight, I've got a lot done since Sunday! I also figured out how to tink with K2Togs...which I'm quite proud of myself for not dropping any stitches. There was a lot of muttered curses though. And Nate might have shot me some concerned looks. But, all in all, it wasn't as bad as I thought....and I tinked for the fun of it apparently, because the mistake I thought I made, yeah, didn't make it. But that's OK! I now know how to tink k2togs :)
|The colors are really more jewel toned|
I can't wait to see how these will come out once they are finished and I fold over the hem so the picot edge shows. The picture doesn't do these justice...granted, I took it at almost midnight on Monday. I think these will turn out to be a great gift!
I also signed up for a mini/ornament swap over in the Danger Crafts Ravelry group which I'm pretty stoked about. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I can't wait to start knitting for my partner. I won't post anything more than sneaks until mid-December after my swap partner gets her package.
