I finished the Hermione Mittens on Tuesday and I finally have an OK picture to post.Ã‚Â I thought getting a good picture of Socks was hard . . . sheesh, that’s nothing to mittens.
pattern: HermioneÃ‚Â Mittens
yarn: Cascade 220
needles: Clover Bamboo
started: Jan 6
finished: Jan 10Ã‚Â
notes:Ã‚Â I made no modifications to this pair of mittens.Ã‚Â I really like this pattern over all.Ã‚Â Since the pattern is for such a long and slim mitten I wear them with the cuffs turned up, I think they fit me better since I have thicker wrists and forearms.Ã‚Â On the next pair I knit, and there will be another, if they are for me I will use a bit heavier yarn.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â A true worsted or aran instead of the Cascade 220, which is a lt. worsted, will give the mitts a bit more room and I will start the pattern further up, like row 8 or so, to cut out a bit of length.Ã‚Â If I knit them for someone else I’ll prolly just knit them as written.
edited to add:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â These mittens qualify for three KALs; Warm Hands, Another Weasley, and Stashalong. andÃ‚Â I resorted to having my just turned 6yo take the picture of the mittens . . . yeah, that was fun.
This is what I have been working on since Tuesday, a Knitting Pure & Simple top down sweater for Daughter.Ã‚Â Sorry the colors look so bad in this picture, I promise they aren’t that bad in real life.
