So, I have made many pairs of mitts. I have made sweaters, toys, lace shawls, and socks. But I always overlooked the glove patterns. I dismissed them as "too hard." Despite the fact that I had become a much better knitter, and I guess if I thought about it, I realized that I was not lacking any of the skills needed to make them.
Well, I finally made gloves.
And they weren't hard!
They're from the fall 09 Vogue knitting. I was reluctant to make them, also because they're from Vogue. But the pattern was well written, I had no problems!
They're made from Socks that Rock lightweight, gifted to me from Sue before I left for Rochester. I've actually never worked with STR before (I have two more skeins in the stash though!) I found that it bled a lot! I had marks around my fingers where the yarn wraps. But it's a pretty colour!
I know they won't keep me warm in the crazy winter, but I've got fair-isle mitts for that... these are for fall!
I wish I could show them to my Grandma.
