Look! I have another mitten on the needles.
Actually, this is the second mitten of the latest pair. Here is its mate:
And the palm:
I am calling this design “Knittens.” Rather a twee name, don’t you think?
But I could not help myself.
I am once again using Madelinetosh Tosh Sock, this time in the Celadon and Turquoise colorways. And a U.S. size 2 (2.75mm) needle.
Speaking of mittens, the Morbid Mittens pattern is now available for sale in my Ravelry shop.
Remember a few days ago I posted a photo of some ribbing done with a tubular cast-on? That was the start of a hat that I ripped out because I wanted to go down a needle size and make a deeper rib. I have done both those things and am now happy with my hat-in-progress.
I am using Madelinetosh Tosh DK (have you figured out that I like Madelinetosh?) in the “Terrarium” colorway. The ribbing was knit using a U.S. size 3 (3.25mm) needle, and the body of the hat is knit using a U.S. size 8 (5mm).
