Mismatched Mitts

fingerless mitts
May 2018
While my knitting progress has slowed, my needles still hold projects. A set of needles in my knitting bag contain a stalled pair of socks. I'll pick up that project again once the fingerless mitts are finished.

A couple of months ago, a knitting friend (Julie W.) gave me some sock yarn. One of the skeins was Poems Socks by Wisdom Yarns (Universal Yarn) 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon - color #963 Girly Girl. The yarn has a different feel and has a halo when knit - almost like it contains some mohair.

one pair finished; another pair in progress

It's self-striping, so the mitts will be mismatched. The 100 gram skein will easily make two pair of fingerless mitts - a pair from me and a pair for a friend.

Thank you, Julie for this colorful yarn.

  1. So pretty - love the colors. And, they look so soft. You will appreciate them come the fall (as will your friend)...and hopefully not before then!!

  2. I am so use to the perfect socks you match, think I would like these better if they matched too.

  3. Pretty yarn! It looks like Kathyb’s pattern. Am I right? I’ve hit a bit of a slump in my knitting and am making dishcloths to fill up my gift basket.

  5. Those colors will definitely brighten up a grey winter day. I have some of that yarn in my stash too, but I haven't tried it yet.
