Well last night marked the start of another project on the 10 in 2010 list! I cast on my Warmeez! Mitts last night while at sit and knit at Panera. I started off as the pattern was written and did a few repeats. I got home and decided I didn’t like it. So I frogged and started again with less stitches this time. I prefer tighter mitts. So far I’ve done 3 repeats of the cable pattern, the pattern calls for 4 and then I can begin the gusset.
The cable is working up nicely. I’ve also discovered cable needles should come with small leashes to attach them to yourself while using them. I misplaced one last night at knitting and in the course of the evening at home I managed to have the other roll away a half dozen times.
This pattern incorporates a stitch that I’ve not used before, the seed stitch. I rather like it! It’s giving the mitts some wonderful texture on the back side!
I also put in a bit more work on the Pretty Thing Cowl last night before I got to the last 15 rows which require a bit more thought than I could devote while chatting to friends. That will get worked on later today I’m sure. Right now I’m loving these mitts!
More updates to come at a later time.
