I got a chance to test knit again, this time a pair of super quick mittens. These took me just a couple of days, maybe 6-10 hours of knitting total.
On Ravelry: Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend
Pattern: Diamond Mittens by Maggie Menzel
Yarn: 107 m/117 yd of Puffala Muhku-Puffa
Needles: 5.0 mm
If I were to knit these again, I’d make the cuffs a bit longer and mirror the cables on the other mitten. I didn’t want to deviate from the pattern while test knitting, but now I’m kinda kicking myself for not doing that. Still, great mittens. And the yarn… I sooo want a sweater in this yarn.
