Leftovers

While I impatiently wait for Webs to send me alpaca yarn for my Handstrikket, I knocked out these mitts using the leftover Dream in Color Classy from the February Baby Cardigan. I'm glad to make something out of the extras - and avoid adding yet another skein to my mountainous stash.



I used the free Susie's Reading Mitts pattern from Dancing Ewe. Cute pattern, very quick knit. The pattern calls for DK yarn and size 5 needles; I used worsted yarn and size 7 needles, and made the smallest size. I have pretty large hands and this sizing adjustment worked perfectly.



I've made four pairs of mitts in the past four months - one for my friend and three for me. Think that's enough mitts for a while? I do! It's time to make a sweater. I sure hope that yarn comes in the mail today.
