fo: Really Quick Mitts
Malabrigio Rasta, and I fell in love with the colours. I wanted a simple pattern to show off the yarn, and Ravelry lead me to Really Quick Mitts, which is designed specifically for this yarn. This pattern was easy to knit, and yes, really quick. I wish the LYS had more of this yarn because I'd just make these mitts for everyone.
magic loop. Hmm yeah, time to learn a new skill. And you know, it wasn't nearly as hard as I made it out to be in my head. Funny how we psych ourselves out about these things, eh?
Because I can't just follow a pattern, I decided to knit this between their small and large (the only two sizes). I basically just cast on 14 stitches (S: 12, L: 16), and then followed the directions for L. Surprisingly, I only used half of the ball of yarn, so either I have ridiculously short hands or...I don't even know. Anyways, I explained my mods on my Rav project page.
Michelle, who lives in Texas and makes mittens anyways. If I could send you some snow, I would. Come to the Yukon and play!
