I keep starting mittens! I really need to finish some of them up don't I?
This yellow one is for a Mystery Mittalong
. Basically, the person leading the knit along gives us a few rows of knitting to do each day but we don't know what it is going to look like until we knit it. I am not quite done with clue #3 here. These will fit a pre-schooler.
This orange pair is from a pattern
that my friend Esther (Thanks Esther!) shared with a group I am on. She wrote the pattern herself and calls it McMittens
because it is an easy pattern to remember and repeat over and over again. Great pattern for charity knitting!
I am using 2 strands of a worsted weight yarn for this one so it is equivalent to the bulky weight the pattern calls for. These are very warm and will fit an adult hand.
Both of these yarns came from my friend Jennifer when she moved! (Thanks Jennifer!) They are wool and I think there was a name on the yellow one but I have been thinking of them as mystery yarn. Perfect for knitting mystery mittens right?
Both pair will be going to Macuwita-sni
to warm the hands of the children on the Cheyenne River Sioux reservation in South Dakota.
Do something for someone else today. It is a good feeling!
