Hooray! I’ve found the pattern that my yarn wanted to be, and mitten number ONE is done. The thumb is left open so you can text with your mittens on. Second mitten is already on the needles. It won’t match, but they will compliment each other.
I’m keeping this pair for me! Well, the yarn WAS given me by Allison at Christmas.
I learned a dear friend’s sister is learning to knit. JULIE, this means YOU! ( Laura if you want to read the blog great!) What I can promise you, is that knit blogs are kind and fun and a path to friends you may never meet, but fall in love with.
I hear you are starting with dishcloths. Oh Julie, you will never go back to a sponge. Even experienced knitters love to knit dischcloths with cotton. Those who crochet love to make them, too.
If you get stuck, ask us. We can help you. Finding a local knit group can be key to your success. Also , classes at a knit shop are worth every penny. Best of luck. The knitting community is such a gift …….
Oh and we are a generous community that knits for charity. There is lots of joy in that.
Finally, I owe you all photos of dear grandkitty Bear…….
