I am on my mission to finish started projects. Yesterday I finished this:
These are the “Fightin’ Words” fingerless gloves. I never blogged about starting them, but I specifically remember starting them when we went on a trip to Crested Butte back when we lived in Colorado. I began them in mid-August 2012. Now nearly four years later, the first mitt is complete.
I did immediately cast on the second mitt though, and I am determined to finish it before I do anything else.
I bought a kit to make these mitts from Knit Picks. I am pretty sure that the yarn I am using is Knit Picks Stroll Fingering weight. It’s a nice soft superwash wool and nylon blend. I like it lots.
Davey took one look at the finished mitt and decided he wants them. The second mitt will say “Pow”!
I also finished my NEON socks. I used Plymouth Neon Now which I bought at my awesome local yarn store.
These were fun to knit. I love self-striping yarn, and I always enjoy this simple sock pattern from Susan B. Anderson.
Now back to the POW mitt!
