I´m not sure what will become of them, but time will tell.
But here is some stuff that is not so secret. A new pair of mittens made with yarn remnants.
When it comes to colour I always find the more the merrier.
I have loved knitting these mittens. What I don´t love quite as much is weaving in all the ends.
This mitten is nowhere near being finished. I haven´t even started on the next one.
And needless to say both mittens still need thumbs.
And you don´t need to have a lot of yarn left, just a couple of yards/meters.
I made these mittens as part of a project for the group Stick-Salongen that I belong to. There are eleven of us and we meet once a month to knit and talk. Yes, the Nerd Level* of our conversations is pretty high and would probably bore others to tears. But some of the things we knit are quite interesting.
(*Nerd Level is a way of quantifying nerdiness, measured in social outcast tiers)
Last Christmas I (very nobly) gave my Karin Kurbits mittens away, so I´m now working on a new pair.
So now the pile of mittens that need thumbs is now growing rapidly next to me in the sofa. For next Christmas I´m going to ask Santa for a thumb-knitting machine.
