But made it through I did, and while I know January will still be busy, I might actually be able to breath! ...maybe.
Anywho, there has been a PLETHORA of knitting and crocheting going on, and I'm going to try to bang out a few posts about that before 2017 - need to bolster my shoddy posting numbers at least a bit! Also, it's killing me, not being able to blog. Or read blogs. I miss you guys!
Northman Mittens, by David Schultz
Ravelry project page
Yarn: Outer mitten - Ístex Lettlopi in Fawn and White; Liner mitten - Drops Alpaca in Light Green
Needles: 3.25 mm
Mods: Raised thumb by doing 4 additional rows after gusset increases before separating out the thumb stitches; removed 4 rows from finger section. Did same mod for the liner mitten, and added more length to the finger section from what pattern suggests (they would've been too short).
These mittens are just what I needed. I lost my old Rasta mittens and my hands were getting cold, and guys, I swear this pattern stalked and seduced me. Everytime I went onto Ravelry - there it was. Three people came into the shop and pointed it out. One person came in and showed me pictures of their pair. It just had to happen.
Good night folks! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, or whatever you celebrate this holiday season! If you don't celebrate anything, well, sorry that you have to deal with us crazies. :D <3
