So Far So Good!

Mitten, mitten whose got the mitten? Well, nobody I guess, they aren't done yet. As you may recall, I started a new knitting class on the 7th of February. We are knitting mittens to be felted. I learned so much in the first class! So much in fact that I have one mitten almost done! I just have to learn how to finish up the thumb when we meet again this Thursday.

And here is my WIP on the second mitten. So far so good! The double pointed needles are very intimidating. I was worried I was going to poke my eye out right away. But they really aren't hard. (Oh, and bamboo needles are incredible!! All my future needle purchases will be bamboo.)

Sorry it's so hard to see any details in these pictures. Black yarn was probably not a good choice when trying to learn something new. Hopefully I will soon be able to show you a finished pair!

At least you didn't try black in lace weight! That's what I chose for my first lace-work pattern I am currently working on. You're mittens look great, look forward to the results!

I agree, bamboo needles are incredible.
