I cast on for my Offering Mitts on February 19, but several projects got in the way. What's new?
Today I sat down and made myself work on the project most of the day. I would say that this mitt is about 1/2 way finished. I can probably finish it tomorrow... since I will have plenty of uninterrupted knitting time. This pic isn't perfect, but I had to do the pic in artificial light (ugh)... here is my progress so far.
I am knitting these in Palette in Bittersweet Heather, using Size 1 needles. I am pushing to finish this first mitt, because the pair are a birthday gift for my DGD1 for her 15th birthday, on April 20. I was a bit worried, but right now, I think I can finish them in a few more days. My problems with the pattern: 1) Lace intimidates me. 2) Using fingering weight yarn intimidates me. 3) Using a Size 1 needle intimidates me. But 4) So far the pattern has worked fine, with no big surprises. Hope you like my mitts. ♥s
The yarn is WotA worsted. I've had some difficulty with th pattern. The thumb position is wrong on the chart, so I ended up frogging and redoing. It works out perfectly if you line up the charts for the hand and the thumb gusset.
