Pin-did Tuesday 10-18-11
Susie’s Reading Mitts: they’ve been on my Ravelry favorites list for just over 2 years (I checked). So when I saw them pop up on Pinterest last week, I took it as a sign.
The pattern calls for a DK weight yarn, and since I didn’t have anything suitable in my stash (shocking, I know, but I checked for that, too) I took a quick trip through The Fiber Gallery after the sew-in on Saturday. It took a couple tries to get the gauge right, and then the size, but by Sunday evening the first one was finished and the 2nd cast on. And by Monday evening, they were a pair.
I wanted a charcoal, but the selection of Madelinetosh DK was limited. Still, nothing knit with MadTosh is less than lovely so I’m certainly not disappointed. Plus the color? It’s called “Thunderstorm”. Love it!
