And Darliss had just finished for herself a pair of Split Finger Mittens. Here's the finished product. Fun to make and quite cute tho they look out of proportion until you put your hands inside.
|The "L" is for "left hand" and the right hand has a red thumb.|
No confusion here.
Sorry, but no link for the pattern since it's from Darliss' storehouse of creative ideas. The yarn is Patons Canadiana, stash from the 5 Christmas Hatts. (Here).
I love the bright contrasts and the stripes. The colors are the school colors for Concordia Lutheran School in Tacoma, where grandson is in 4th grade and his mom and dad are loyal supportive parents.
However -- adding color always means lots of weaving in of the ends, unless you can carry the contrast without cutting the yarn (which I didn't do.)
Messy messy and lots of ends, the pesky kind. I'm listening to S.J. Parris' Heresy, more English turmoil during the days of the Reformation.
|Here it is "sorted" as the Brits say.|
Hoping the Conductive Thread works so the wearer can use mobile devices even while wearing the mittens.
|It's twirly twisty 'thread' and hard to sew with. |
I hope the 'blob' will suffice.
Meanwhile, the clown quilt is ready for backing and quilting. This has been a fun project and went very quickly.
Busy week ahead with quilting and sewing some projects. Hoping you each have a pleasant week with a minimum of chaos.
