I like these mittens anyway! The yarn wasn't chunky enough so they knit up too small for me. Some young girl at one of the local charities should like these, no? In the meantime, I have enough yarn, I'm going to double it up and knit myself a pair. That is, after I finish my Hat Trick. Two down, one to go. I need to rest up my fingers though. The yarn + dry weather have made my cuticles torn and sore.
Note: I nabbed this yarn at a LYS a couple summers ago for 50% off. The color is kind of blinding, but it's as soft as wool can be.
Let's see...I still have a finished pair of socks to show off, and now two hats! (Also, more yarn....)
Have you tried Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle treatment? NICE. So is their Almond Milk hand cream - perfect to use before bedtime.
Thanks again for yet another free pattern!
