I’ve finished the first mitten but as this colorway only had 1 ounce, I’m not doing a second. It is a luscious mitten and very gorgeous to wear. It didn’t take all of my one ounce to finish it, and you may also notice that it has a long cuff on it. It will take me close to 2 ounces to make a pair since this is exactly how I will make a pair for myself.
Yes, I will be making myself some. The greatest annoyance was how much the silk stuck to my hands and nails. It really showed how little care and attention I pay to my hands. I’m going to work on softening them and make myself a funky pair of mittens using a bunch of potlucks.
Also, I think a tighter gauge would have been nice. Not that these don’t feel fabulous as they are. Just in a tighter gauge I think they’d be prettier. This yarn is not very stretchy so it can get a little tiresome to work with if you’re used to wool. But it holds it’s stitches and if you have to frog, it’s very forgiving.
All in all, the end product is way worth any small aggravation that I might have had while knitting them.
