I have had a mitten knitting month. I knitted the last Blue Loops bag and also instead of the hat . I knitted the Japanese mitts from the Knitstars Season 5. They are not yet blocked in the photo.
I also went out of my comfort zone and answered a call from Mary Jane Mucklestone to knit up some new mitts she was writing a pattern for. I just happened to have enough of the Lopi wool needed for the pattern. It went quite well. I unfortunately put the heart on upside down and I am not great at Duplicate Stitch.
I have never answered the call to do a test knit and I can only say its the weekly chat we have on a Friday and the encouragement given through you all and the books and newsletters I have read from you. It has given me the confidence I needed. So a big Thank You to all
Thank you very much for posting your photos and telling us about your experience with test knitting a project! I’m so glad that the group has been an encouragement to you! Your projects are all beautiful!
