At last, I’ve managed my fear of DPNs. Every time I picked them up and tried something it felt hopeless, tangled and uncomfortable. Then about a week ago I said ‘this is it! I want mittens!’ and I picked up the DPNs and all at once they were super easy. I don’t even know what I was doing wrong before.
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios, and the colourway is called “Arch Angel”. The varigated colourways available in this yarn are so pretty!
The pattern is from a KnitSimple workbook, but I’m not too thrilled with the thumb gussets, I’ll be trying Tanis’ Grammy Mitts next time. I think it’s the perfect way to use up all the spare yarn I have in Jewel and Stormy. Not having to seam up anything afterwards was nice =o)
For those who are new as well to DPNs I found this article to be very helpful by Knitty.com.
