Sorry for the radio silence, people. I totally thought I scheduled this post for the first and apparently accidentally wrote the tenth. So… here’s the post. Also, I hope you’ll forgive me for not doing a 2009 wrap up post. I’m not really into wrap ups. Anyway, here’s some mitts:

Pattern: Endpaper Mitts, by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette in some shade of purple (lost the ballband) and “Fog”
Needles: US 1/2.25 mm and US 3/3.25 mm
Mods: Went up a needle size for the ribbing because I didn’t have any 0’s, and it’s a good thing I did since the cuff came out a bit snug anyway.

So… I fail at reading directions and managed to fuck up the thumb gusset on the first one of these , but I think they came out well regardless. I managed to not completely screw up the colorwork and my floats are loose enough that I can actually get the damn things onto my wrists. And they’re pretty. : ) Though, I have to say, I meant to make the medium (and use a US 2 needle) but for some reason read “3 mm” as “US 3” so I ended up using 3.25 mm needles, though I doubt that really made a huge difference.

Still, like I said, I like how they came out. : ) Very toasty and very comfortable.
