Haha- Hi everyone!
Back when I didn't know anything about mitten making- I made these. Small needles and thin yarn & I did them on straight needles- and sewed it up the side. I was looking at a victorian illustration of a knitted mitten- and I just guessed my way through it. I'm all about making this stuff up!This was sort of a test to see how my swatch patterns would look in a garment. Because this was made with 2.75mm needles, it feels much more delicate and 'fancy' compared with my other mittens. It's also lighter, so would be good for spring time, when there is still a chill in the air. It feels more like a relic, like an actual victorian mitten, and doesn't seem as 'comfy' and 'wearable' as the chunkier ones. But- maybe that's just me... haha.
