Friday Needle Report--Mitts!

The Maine Morning Mitts are clicking along.  I was a little apprehensive about knitting the thumb hole on the first mitt, but I confirmed with my knittly friends and then did it.  I cast on the second mitt, which appears will be mostly turquoise.  I used Ella Rae Sand Art yarn from Tuesday Morning, and after knitting the first mitt re-read the ball band:  random color repeats for original colored fabric, or something to that effect. 

Anyway, the second mitt will probably turn out totally different than the first.  I may try to knit another pair and see which two match the best.  It is a quick knit with worsted yarn and larger (5 or 7?) needles. 

I did cast on another sock in fabulous Indulgence self patterning yarn, but forgot to take a picture, so I will show it to you next week. 


  1. pretty yarn maybe you can get 2 pair out of the ball and match them up

  2. I love this! How fun they are going to be. I like that you might get 3 or 4 mittens--think of the possibilities! ;)
