A little knitting with that?

I’ve finished my mittens! This is the basic mitten pattern from Ann Budd’s book “A Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns” knitted in Wisdom Yarn’s Poems, on size 3 dpns. They do not match – I did the gusset increases and mitten top decrease differently on the second mitten, to make it fit a little more closely. Another change to the pattern on each mitten – I picked up five stitches across the top of the gusset rather then just one – picking up just one left noticeable holes that then had to be woven over during finishing. Picking up five made a nicer thumb join, with minimal holes.

Still Mittens

I am also plugging away at the sweater sampler I am working on (from Jacqueline Fee’s “The Sweater Workshop”). So far I have knit plackets and pockets and stripes and all kinds of ribbing and all kinds of increases and and and… It’s a fun project and I am learning a lot.
