Lo and behold, I have a finished pair of socks to show you today. Are…
Hey, hey, hey, it’s the first finished knit of 2023 and I’m coming at you on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday. We’re mixing things up like crazy around here these days and we’re starting with these mitts.
The pattern is Arched Gusset Mittens . . . but I prefer fingerless mitts so I modified them to my liking.
The yarn is Purl Soho Knitting Yarn and it’s wonderful to use. It’s a soft but sturdy 100% merino wool from New Zealand and it comes in a gorgeous array of colors. It’s $15 for a 219 yard ball and it’s a light worsted weight, perfect for all sorts of projects but particularly perfect for these mitts.
The pattern has a clever thumb gusset unlike any I’ve knit before and it makes for a snug and comfortable fit.
These knit up really quickly despite the challenges I face with keeping the knitting away from Fred & George. Or, to be fair, George because, while Fred will often ignore the knitting process, George is simply incorrigible about it.
I may or may not have bought other colors to make more of these.
