2 oz. of worsted-weight yarn hand-dyed by Gail Callahan (the Kangaroo Dyer)
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make myself a pair of mitts that (a) I could wear while typing (b) I could wear while knitting (c) would cover the part of my wrists that my coat doesn't cover when I'm waiting for the bus. And I didn't want to have to think while I was knitting them in the round.
What are you most proud of?
My cool stitch pattern that wraps around and around and around the hand!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just do it. Really fun!
