Bluebird Mitts


Nicole of Singing of Hope blog asked for some test knitters for some patterns she wrote up a while ago, so I thought I'd give her a knitting helping hand.  That's what knitters do!!


I dug deep into my stash and unearthed some wool and cast on.  I'm having fun knitting with two colors and with some wooden needles.  I find when I'm dpn-ing (shall we coin a knitting verb?  double pointed needling....)  they are kind to my hands.


Ravelry notes are here.

As you may have guessed these mitts are for a holiday gift.  Ho ho ho!!

  22. I love the red and grey... beautiful pattern indeed. I always knit with wooden or galvenized bamboo needles. It's what I learned with and because of it, I find metal needles very splippery.
