Here’s hoping for a cold(ish) winter. Why? So I can wear this pair of mittens I’ve just knitted using the chunky handspun marled merino I plied back in early July.
The yarn was rather inconsistent so I’ve had to do a bit of darning here and there to close up some holes. I also did a lot of knitting into the back of stitches to try and prevent holes appearing.
The “arc” is formed using lifted increases which was a new technique for me to master. Thankfully, there are lots of extremely useful YouTube videos to consult.
I’ve still got 100g left so I might attempt a matching closed-tube cowl. I’ll be very snug and warm walking the dog on a frosty day!
