I Forgot…

…Ooops.  I have been so good posting every day and I just plain old forgot.  So here is the make-up post.

And this is what I would have showed you:

my mawata silk mittens in just sort of a generic pattern.  Done.

I did these with Pat as a KAL and we both had fun doing them.

I loved these matawas from Blue Moon FIber Arts that I got at  sock camp this year.  The color is I Mad Heart Ewe, cute, huh?  I used 38 of 40 grams and a size 5 needle (magic loop).

They are 7 inches around the palm and 9 inches tip to cuff (not counting the 2 inch junk I knit before I figured out what I was doing cuff liner.  They are perfect for throwing on with my brown coat for my driving duties.

Once I got used to prepping the hankies, my mittens got better and I got the hang of knitting from the fiber in the raw.

I wasn’t sure but I do in fact like them and may even do it again!
