It’s amazing how fast something can be finished once you have it organized. So, here they are, my mitts. I used self-striping yarn. Few things are as great as self-striping yarn. You get a pattern and you don’t have to do any work. I cast on 60 stitches for each mitt using this sock weight yarn. I used size 4 circular needles. I did about an inch of ribbing on both ends, but other than that, I did a simple knit stitch. I did these without a pattern because, knitting in the round, I could try them on as a went and I make adjustments if I needed to.

I am celebrating this small victory. It feels so good to finish something. I’m now on the look out for my next project. I would like to do something summery, but at the rate I’m knitting these days, I should probably start something wintry so it’ll be ready for the Fall.
