I finished knitting these mitts for my daughter a few days ago. Do you remember this sweater? Well I had one very lonely orphaned skein left over from that project. When my daughter put in the request for mitts, I was already tripping up the stairs to my studio to dig down in my worsted weight basket, snapping a photo, texting her and asking "is this color okay?"
Thankfully she said "yes" and the cast on begun. The pattern is susie's reading mitts and the ravelry project page is here. As you know I love to knit with lace weight or fingering weight yarns, but I enjoyed immensely how quickly these mitts knit up because they are worsted weight. Instant knitting gratification!!
