I am smitten with my new project . . . because it is mittens.
(Get it? I am smitten with a mitten. So clever am I . . . )
I winkled together this design, based on Scandinavian mitten designs and incorporating a traditional Fair isle motif along with my own doodlings.
In the past, I always knit mittens on dpns. This is my first time using two circulars and I am quite liking it. I’m finding that colorwork on 2 circulars easier than on dpns.
Now, in the past when working on a fair isle sweater, I tried two circulars for the lower sleeves (where the circumference is too small for a 16-inch circular) and did not like it. I wonder if I tried 2 circs again for a fair isle sleeve would I have a change of heart? I’m betting yes.
“Mittens? I don’t need no stinkin’ mittens!!
