mittens progress

norwegian mittens. version 2.1. knitter's almanac. lighter weight yarn, different colors, much more enjoyable. it's still a bit bumpy but i'm quite a proud mitten-maker at the moment.




and the palm side. you can see the scrap yarn where the magic thumb trick was used. and as you can also see, i forgot to resume the tiling pattern after the thumb trick! the stripey part was only supposed to be for the thumb. oh well. i'm hoping that it'll look cool anyway when it's completed.

  • Very nice - I like the color combo, and if you hadn't mentioned about the thumb I wouldn't have noticed.

  • Once you block these, the bumps will be gone and they'll be smooth as can be. Very nice and I love the colours

  • thanks for the nice comments! the yarn i'm using is a pink merino wool i picked up from a sheep & wool festival in NH some years back, and the tan is harvested from salvation army sweater! this pattern in a nice way of using up random balls of yarn.
