Then the next week Sunset Knitter (formerly known as KnittingNovice) asked if we want anything from Knit picks. I said oh no not really, but I'll look anyway. The next thing I know I have the Tiffany mitten pattern in my hand and I'm asking Suzy, "What do you think about these colors?"
So I ordered and here is a closer look at what I chose:
The iris is the main color, with the asparagus as the tiffany window pattern. The flower band will be cream flowers on a turquoise background. The yarn is Knit picks merino style and I love it! The yarn is soft and squishy, and I really enjoy working with it. Like I just started my first sweater, and I am already planning another one with this yarn.
This is my lunch time project, and this is how far I have gotten:
Not bad, huh? I did have to frog the first try because I used the bigger needle size, since my hands are not exactly slender. However they made for man mittens. Frogged and am now using 2s. The mittens take a little concentration, and I knit English style, so the color stranding makes for slow going, but I enjoy it. See I did that hat and thought I was an expert. Ha! Wouldn't do a color stranded sweater yet, but mittens I think I can handle.
