I just finished making four pair of baby mitts. My DD said she could use some more to keep her new baby girl's hands warm, even in the house (quite a breeze to make cold hands when she sits in her swing ).
I found a little pattern, but didn't follow anything about it. I changed the number of stitches, added a eyelet row for a twisted cord to hold them on, and finished off like the toe of a sock. I had pink, green, and white left over from a sweater project.
This is Nature Spun wool by Brown Sheep Company. It is sport weight. I wanted to use it all up. I wanted to make solid colors, but on the pink I was afraid I would run out, so added the white and green stripes. Still had more, so did a set with pink cuffs, so would have been able to make solid pink. Oh, well.
The last ones I made were the ones with pink cuffs. I made these at the same time so I could make them the same as I ran out of the different colors. :lol: I decided to make them pointy.
I'm wondering how DD will like them since they are 100% wool. I know she likes wool, but am wondering about the washing. I think she might be able to wash them in the washer on delicate and lay them out to dry. What do you think? :??
