More mitts, done!

Today I finished my second pair of Silk Garden mitts.

Only that tiny bit of yarn was left. However, I’d cut out a section of gray/brown to keep them light and more on the red side. So I only used 35 grams of the 50 gram ball.

As I was weaving ends in, I noticed something funny…


Maybe you can see a stitch sticking out? I’d dropped a stitch a few rows after the thumb hole.

I tinked back to the mistake and re-knit the mitt from there. Haha, JK, I’d never do that! I secured it with a spare bit of yarn and called it a day.

Oops, didn’t hit “publish” last night, which explains my two posts in a row. I’m nearly at the heel! The changing colors really keep me going.  I only stopped because I need to  finish my spinning project.
Thankfully, the pattern calls for a short-row heel, so the rainbow-y gradation won’t be interrupted. My challenge was to start the heel before I reached the purple on the Noro, so the heel would stand out. 

What a fun knit!
