Thanks so much for all the Birthday wishes for Stitches! I think she had a good day. She went from a quiet day:
To a much more fun day pretty quickly!
There’s even a short video.
Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Euny Jang
Yarn: Handspun Merino/Tencel
Needles: Size 1 and 2 addi lace and knitpicks respectively
Mods: I used a long tail cast on and a stretchy bind off instead of the ones that were recommended in the pattern
This was a really fun knit! The pattern is interesting enough to keep you going without being overly complicated. These really made perfect train knitting since the charts were pretty small and easy to balance on the lap while traveling. I think they worked out perfectly with this handspun too.
There’s nothing quite like working with handspun. Especially your own handspun! There’s just a spring and a life to it that commercial yarn could never replicate. I may be a little bit sorry that I didn’t try out the recommended cast on and bind off, but I think they worked out ok. I think they’ll be a good length for those chilly spring mornings too.
I had hoped for a daylight photo shoot but I got home too late. This is the best I could do.
I still have a bunch of yarn leftover too… about 68 grams of each color.
I think a shorter pair of mitts are in the future, but for now I’m on to trying to finish a certain sweater before next week:
And started another colorwork project. Stay tuned!
P.S. OMG!! My shop got mentioned on Lime ‘n Violet!!
