These were my second official stranded colorwork pattern. I am in LOVE with fair isle-ing!! I had so much fun making these, and they went so quick. I am still not totally comfortable with how to hold the yarn in my left hand but it is getting more comfortable, I don't know how to control the tension all that well. Anyway, here are the pics!!
Dorky artsy shot:
Close up: (you can see how it isn't totally smooth, tension isn't the greatest)
Pattern: endpaper mitts from Eunny Jang
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull, a little less then one ball of dark and light blue each
Start Date: February 12, 2007
End Date: February 16, 2007
Comments: I had to adjust the needle size due to guage problems, I am a really tight knitter, so I made these on size 3 and 5's instead of 0's and 3's. But they fit me perfectly, I made the largest size, as my measurement is 8.25. It was SUCH a fun knit though!! I think I might make another pair of these someday. My next colorwork project will be the anemoi mittens, but first I am halfway through the left front of the cardigan for arwen. It is turning out really nice, I am using knitpicks andean silk. Pictures of that to come!!
