One down ...


One to go . I guess the third time really is a charm . Despite having a super busy week-end I FINALLY have a Bird in Hand mitten with an eensy bit of blue yarn left . I cast on right away for the second mitten , because if I put this down for even a little time out I probably won't get back to it before next winter. I read somewhere that folk mitten knitters used to sit on their finished mittens at meal times to block them . Don't know if that's true but I'll just have to go make a cup of tea and then sit on a mitten .

Very nice! I suppose sitting on it would be a good way to block it. :)

Your mitten is just gorgeous! Wait till you finish the other and then wear them! What compliments you'll get!
