Mittens and Gloves Galore »
InstructionsIf you use a yarn other than that specified in the project you will need to adjust your gauge. If you don't know how Marly can help you with it. Knit a swatch (!!) if you don't know what gauge your yarn and needles will produce because in these projects gauge is important, very important.

What was your inspiration?
Grand children! And, in case everybody is wondering...Yes I did not thrum the thumb. My 9 yr old grandson said "Don't put anymore of that fat stuff in there, 'cause I need my thumbs for texting". I aim to please (LOL).
What are you most proud of?
The other project for this class, my first full fingered gloves. I just did these thrummed mittens because I had not done thrumming before, and they were quite fun.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Beginners should not shy away from this class. Marly gives very good instructions and tips along the way and you'll do fine. More advanced knitters will enjoy this class as well as there are some nice little tips and useful information. Start at the beginning and watch all the videos, you also will learn something, I did!
