So this is the first mitten, nearly done. It's done in a multi-coloured Paton's yarn.
There is no mate, being a technique mitten. Picking up the stitches at the thumb was a pain of gargangutan proportions. So I've learned that knitting mittens can be fun, now I'm doing a real pair with a black tweed cuff and a red body. Pictures to follow, as soon as I knit enough of it. So now I'm thinking that socks might be fun too. Have you been following the Harlot's adventures? I'm thinking my mittens need to travel, get their pictures taken outside of the apartment. Just for kicks. I'm hoping I have enough fun that I don't mind making fifty or so.
Just a short one tonight, maybe more tomorrow.
