259. My Mitten Progress


As I’m writing this, there is a kitten on my lap trying to type mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm see that, that’s kitty..

I cast on the mittens last night, and they’re going so well. I started with a Latvian Braid, which is easier than it looks.  Basically everything is the same, except after the cuff section, I put in another Latvian Braid. I’m up past the thumb gusset now, these things are just speeding along. I think it’s because I really enjoy working on them. I can’t wait to see the finished project, the gradations of the color is coming out nicely. I don’t think that a lot of the colors will come into the mittens, but that’s okay. I can probably get a second pair of something out of the Noro too. Maybe fingerless mittens. Could be fun.

-Cheers folks!

They look really cool! Sort of like what the Yarn Harlot is doing right now except different colors. I just love the variegated yarn you're using, though I'm not friends with Noro at all.

Didn't know there was such a thing as a Latvian braid, and this coming from a Latvian kid.
