FK: End of the Endpaper Mitts


I tried to get better pictures, but do y'all know how yard it is to photograph one's own hands? Made me wanna throw my camera. I'm gonna have to stop making gloves. Or find a model. And I think I need to make a light box. That glare is horrible. My apologies.

I finished these Sunday night, as Ben was handing candy out to all the goblins that came to our door.

This was my first big two-color project, and it was a blast. It took a little bit to get the hang of it, but once I got past the fiddly and into the rhythm, they went crazy fast. (Aside from the part where I put them down and let them sit for two weeks...) If I were to ever make them again, though, I would use two solid colors. The color change in the blue is interesting, but I think it's too much for the eyes to handle along with the patterning.


Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage in "5601" (Black) and "9848" (Blue). Creative color names, yes?

Needles: US 0/2mm for ribbing
US 3/3.25mm for body

YTD Mileage: 43 grams = 184 yards = 4.55 miles!

I love how those turned out. I love the colors. I see mitts on Norwegian blogs, and I always think they'd be wonderful to own. They look so warm.
Blessings,
Marcia
