My first non-scarf project

Postby Illumina » Mon Nov 18, 2013 8:58 pm

Ok - still probably one of the simplest knits but quite proud of my little fingerless mitts!

My edges were a little sloppy so thats something to improve upon - my ribbing was sloppy on this attempt but the other mitt is coming on a lot tidier :D . Really got my sights set on knitting some complete mittens WITH thumb (got a minion pattern off ravelry which would be PERFECT for some little people I know) but knitting on 3 dpns as in the pattern is something I've not got my head around yet.

Anyhoo... here we go!

Whey hey, well done you, your sloppy edges are probably only noticeable to you, so don't let them take away anything from your achievement, but good on you for recognising where you can improve your skills.
Good luck with mitt number two.
Oh and love the yarn colours.

Oh well done that lady! I echo everything Joy says - our mistakes always look much worse to us than to everyone else. Great stuff :D
I have heard of housework, but I definitely don't like the sound of it
