FO – Hidden Gusset

posted in: Finished Objects, knit | 5

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.

Backnang Wollfestival 2014_Koigu KPPPM

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.

Hidden gusset - finished

… 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

Hidden gusset - wear

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.

What about you? Can you keep them together? How you do it?

    Maybe you need to go for more of the “mittens on a string” type approach, that would stop you losing one of them ;)

      You mean, like a kid? Oh well, it might be a solution :-)

    I am having a hard time figuring out the marker placement. Any Suggestions?
