mittens & a sweater

I finished the Hermione Mittens on Tuesday and I finally have an OK picture to post.  I thought getting a good picture of Socks was hard . . . sheesh, that’s nothing to mittens.

pattern: Hermione Mittens
yarn: Cascade 220
needles: Clover Bamboo
started: Jan 6
finished: Jan 10 
notes:  I made no modifications to this pair of mittens.  I really like this pattern over all.  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.  On the next pair I knit, and there will be another, if they are for me I will use a bit heavier yarn.  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.  If I knit them for someone else I’ll prolly just knit them as written.

edited to add:  These mittens qualify for three KALs; Warm Hands, Another Weasley, and Stashalong. and  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.  Sorry the colors look so bad in this picture, I promise they aren’t that bad in real life.
