Fighting off the winter blues with knitting projects.
January, my goal was to knit my first ever pair of mittens.
I started with making a simple pair of fingerless gloves. The pattern is simple. Looking for a picture, I realized I never took one of the finished product-but there is a picture of the gloves in the pattern link. This pair was given to one of my daughters. I knit up another set, in grey for myself. I love them and wear them all of the time.
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease
Pattern: Jordon's Fingerless Gloves/free Ravelry Download.
I am a visual learner, so I love video tutorials when trying out something new. I found a pattern with how-to videos included from Very Pink . Same place I purchased my first knitted socks tutorial.
Yarn; Vanna's Choice Heather yarn
I made both mittens and then went back and worked the thumb. That seemed to be the most intimidating part to me.
I knit up the "large" size. They are a little big, so I plan on making another pair, but knit the "medium" size.
It was a fun knit!
What winter projects have you been working on?
**the darker grey is the more accurate color of the mittens. (the last two pictures)
