The Mitts are Finished

Notice I said “finished”, not “done” as in baked in the oven.  Actually, they could stand some heat.  They are a little big.  So I put them on and washed the dishes and gave them a good scrubbing.  The cuffs are the right size so I had to be careful.  Here they are pre-wash.

Can you see the difference in the thumbs?  The left thumb (bottom) was knit with the main color in my left hand and the right with contrasting color in my right hand. Also, the left cuff is two rows shorter than the right.  I’m glad they are finished.  Now I can go back to my black socks.  When they are finished, I’m starting on these.

It’s mosaic which I haven’t done in a long long time.  Somewhere in this house, I have the Barbara Walker  book.  It must be forty years old.  Am I that old?  It works with one color at a time and every pattern round is worked twice.  The yarn is wool, silk, poly amide and cashmere and it’s machine washable.  That’s why I like Red Bird.  They always send great yarn and interesting patterns.

    Did you really truly wash the dishes with the mittens on? Where is the picture of that? I want to see it. Hahaha! Nice to see that your snow is all gone. Spring is just around the corner?
