Finished Project #5 for 2006 :)

Snowdrift Mittens: Done!

I had to cut into it last night and make a hole for a thumb. Yes, that’s right, I forgot the thumb hole when I was knitting the second one. I’m so embarrassed.

Snowdrift Mittens, finished April 25, 2006
Pattern: a modification of the pattern here.
Yarn: Blue and white Phentax acrylic yarn (it’s really pretty and soft, which makes up for the forced cheepnis because I couldn’t find a yarn store when I was buying it)
Needles: 4.25mm dpns
Dimensions: slightly too long, but I’ll make alterations when I can compare them to my aunt’s hands.

  4. Thanks! I’m excited to give them to my aunt. As soon as I figure out how long her hands really are, I’m going to rip back and reknit the tips and line them and everything. It’s going to be great.

  5. [...] There have been quite a few people getting to my site via questions about casting on and off, so that’s what I’ll be featuring this week. It’s incredible how much more professional a piece looks when it uses an appropriate cast-on; when I was knitting the Snowdrift Mittens for my aunt a few months ago, I was amazed by how a tubular cast-on transformed them. Compared to them, the other mittens I knitted looked painfully amateur; it was like my snowdrift mittens had been taken to a higher plane of mitten existence. [...]
