Joining in the fun at Frontier Dreams, and yes,I am knitting yet another pair of fingerless mitts! It seems that everyone in my family would like a pair, and I am happy to oblige. I think there is one more pair in the queue after these, and then it is back to sweaters I’ve been dreaming of for me and my brood, not to mention a cowl that I want for myself. If only I could decide on a pattern…does anyone have a favorite pattern that would work for a DK weight merino?
These lovely mitts are for my sweet girl Ella. She’s a sassy, creative, little one, that girl. So she gets a little pair of sassy, creative mitts! She picked the yarn out herself – leftover balls of some gorgeous hand-dyed merino from Capistrano Fiber Arts. Since there was not enough of any one color, she’s getting fun mismatched mitts (I told her that it would be easier to tell the right from the left that way!).
One done, one just begun. They really are quite precious.
Coming up this week… I’m super excited to give a tour of the homestead. With plants in the ground, and signs of spring everywhere, it’s about time I feature some of the vegetables and animals so near and dear to my heart. Until next time!
