These wild-lighting mittens have to be the prettiest thing I’ve ever knitted. And they have the added bonus of being for ME!
Problem 1: They’re really snug, but maybe they’ll stretch out a bit…please?
Problem 2: I’m moving to Florida, where I doubt I’ll really need these wooly wonders.
And before you ask, no, you can’t have them. They’re too small for you, too!
They’re coming to Florida with me. I’m hoping for another freak winter that freezes the iguanas out of the trees in Miami.
For the knitters: I used less than one ball of Schoppel Wolle Zauberball in color “fuchsienbeet”. That color name cracks me up. I used size 1 needles, knit the mittens flat, and seamed them. I made up this pattern, and it was really easy.
Update: I didn’t take them with me to Florida. I faced the music and admitted they were too tight. I gave them to a teenaged niece and hoped she wouldn’t outgrow them too fast! I have never needed mittens since moving here. I did, however, bring the leftover yarn! Check out the baby hat I made with it here!
