A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

December 25, 2010


Pattern: Ringo & Elwood by Barbara Gregory
Yarn: Louet Gems in Cream and Koigu KPM (brown)
Needles: US1 and 2 dpns
Notes: I was not very happy with my tension of the first mitten. I didn't want to radically change my approach for the second because I still wanted them to match. I continued trapping my floats on every 5th or 6th stitch but worked very hard at keeping the floats relaxed. I'm much happier with the second mitten (on the right in the photo) but it is a bit larger than the first due to a more relaxed tension. You can really see the difference in the facial details. All in all and entertaining and quick knit. Ringo has already been started.

tension or not, they are still really cute!
