The Morbid Mittens are done:
To recap, I knit these from Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the “Composition Book Grey” and “Tart” colorway, on U.S. size 2 (2.75mm) needles. The mittens took about 1/3 of a skein of each color, that is, approximately 135 yards of each color.
Pattern coming soon.
Nicole asked a great question in the comments the other day:
Are you doing anything special with the contrasting color when you have several main color stitches in a row, or are you just letting it float along the inside?
So glad you asked! Long-time readers may remember that when doing stranded colorwork, I prefer to let the color not in use simply float along the back rather than weave. But in the case of mittens, I do weave, approximately every 5 or 6 stitches. This is because I don’t want fingers getting caught in loose floats on the inside of the mitten.
