I was doing so well...

I'm still working on these - have been distracted by travel, work, and other knitting project. Shame on me! Think these are number nine, though, so I think the end is in sight!

Stripes all the way

Here's my fiftth pair of mittens, stripes again. It's from the same book as the earlier pair (Myssystä sukkiin), just a different variation of that pattern. I changed it by adding increases for the thumb, there were none in the original pattern. I used Novita 7 veljestä and the needles were 3 and 3½ mm.

Pair No 4, and the fifth is on the way!

I finished my fourth pair of mittens last weekend. The pattern is from a book "Myssystä sukkiin", the yarn is Gjestal Nagano and Novita Nalle, and the needles I used were 2½ and 3 mm. The pattern was really addictive, and I could use the technique I learned last year in a course about colored knitting. Now I'm knitting another pair, the pattern is a variation of this one, and equally addictive!
