It was an unexpected sunny morning, which was the perfect time to introduce you to my latest knitting project.
There was a bit of a delay, as I first had to get the remote working correctly.
I ordered the pattern and yarns early in October, but the Socktober mystery socks took up most of that month.
Now, chevron is a lovely basic pattern, easy to memorize. Which means that knitting it can get boring, even with color changes every three rows. Luckily, I discovered Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcasts just as I was starting these, and that was the perfect accompaniment to the process of knitting these mittens.
While knitting these beauties, I listened to 5.5 hours on the battles of WWII’s Eastern Front and 4 hours on the Punic Wars. If you ever find yourself with time to kill, I highly recommend these podcasts. Entertaining as well as educational. Edutainment for the masses.
I adore these mittens. And they are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.
They make me smile — I can’t wait to wear them once the weather gets cold.
