Something for Me!
Something that I haven't blogged about? New knits for me. That's because I haven't made any in almost two years. I've worked on lots of presents for others, but haven't used my hobby to add to my wardrobe in awhile. I decided to change that recently, so I worked on a few things for myself. The first is a pair of fingerless mitts.
These are the Lana gloves. I made them in Paton's Classic Wool in Deep Olive. It was great to use some stash yarn (this was one of my first yarns - I got it in 2009). I really like working with the yarn and the gloves have held up great so far. I did them two-at-a-time in-the-round, using these helpful instructions.
I've been wearing them over a pair of SmarTouch gloves that I got for Christmas. I like the look of the SmarTouch gloves alone, but the mitts have made them warmer for our cold winter and I'm glad I don't need to wait for fingerless weather to use my gift to me!
