278. My New Mitten


I cast on a new pair of mittens this afternoon. Thrummed mittens. I have decided that I’m going to try to get a booth at one of the local markets here to try to sell some knitwear. First thing I need: stuff to sell. I’m figuring that since I’m nearly halfway done the first mitten, and it’s been maybe 5 hours of work, I can crank out a pair of mittens easily in three or four days. Easily. I’ll also be making some traditional “Newfoundland Mittens”, those ones with the honey comb patterning. I’ll also do some beanies and maybe a few cowls. We’ll see. I guess It just has to be whatever strikes my fancy at the time.

-Cheers folks!

Very awesome. I really need to cast on for my thrummed mittens, though I feel a little silly knitting them in Virginia.
