Well, it seemed like a good idea. Now I'm not so sure. Z chose the colors and given his penchance for "stripey" clothing we determined to make him some appropriate mitts.
Man! I like this pattern much more as a solid. So fussy to switch colors and it gets all wonky with the thumb gusset increases.
Not to mention the ends. The ends!
Oh ye of much knowledge. Suggestions please. Pattern? Technique?
I have SERIOUS second mitt syndrome. This is a problem because, as you will see, it's getting a little chilly up here.
Goblin Eyes. 4 oz. of Spunky Club Romney spun into 130 yds of worsted weight 2 ply. Loving those color comboes. Maybe I'll give some mittens a chance.
The vibrancy died down a bit in setting the twist. Lots of dye on my fingers and in the rinse too. Hmmm...
Here's the Maldives from Hello Yarn Club September. Three stages of prep and ready to spin. Don't those colors look SMASHING against the red couch?!?!?
It snowed quite a bit yesterday but nothing stuck. Above is Z's snow pic.
