This is my first entry this year for finished objects. Lately, I cheated my knitting with spinning. So small projects are very handy to finish. And you can always use something for your hands, like mitts or gloves. Combined with a cheerful colour, it’s perfect.
Last year I went to the Backnanger wool festival. There I found these colorful Koigu skeins. As their yardage is only 160m per 50g. It suits for any small accessories like mitts. And mitts are perfect for traveling as they’re a portable small project.
I took it with while waiting for wind…
I took it with while meet some fellow knitters and have delicious ice cream…
… and back again in Switzerland I finished them.
Pattern: Hidden Gusset by Mone Dräger (free)
Needle size: 2.75mm
Yarn: Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM), colour “P 139 323”
Yardage: 40 g/ 128 m
Since they’re finished, I wear them a lot. They are perfect to wear under my skiing mittens, when I ride my scooter. Or for a walk. Or anything else.
The yarn is very soft and I’m in love with the colours. So gorgeous. It’s 100% Merino and I’m wonder how long they last. Or maybe I loose them before they would worn out.
When it comes to gloves/ mitts, I always tend to loose one of it. Especially when they’re handmade.
