It is getting cold :: Knitting ::
Wednesday, 25 November 2015
Happy Wednesday everyone! So I received a few complaints about the weather from a little someone whose hands are getting really cold. Some desperate knitting later, one mitten was done. Another one on its way. Hopefully tomorrow there will be no more complaints, and there will be toasty hands.
The original pattern is from this book (I used it for this jumper as well) - but it is not the right size, and I like knitting my mittens in the round (the pattern suggests that they are knitted flat), so basically it is only an inspiration for knitting these mittens.
I wanted a tweedy effect, but did not have any tweed yarn in my stash, so I decided to knit together strands from 2 different colours of Drops Alpaca (so, so soft) - destashing in the process. I really like the effect, and it sort of goes with his acorn beanie hat (I did say 'sort of').
Better get on with the second mitten, because I know that Baby MiH will be asking for his mittens tomorrow morning. Nothing like pressure from a nearly 3 yo to keep you going!
