Quickie post — Jenny’s mitts


What you see here is 73 grams and 222 metres of fingering/sport weight yarn all ready for knitting.  I still have another 30 odd grams of fibre left.  But I really think I have enough to knit elbow length gauntlets.

The picture on top shows the sheen that comes through from the blended silk.  And the photo below, without the flash, shows the noils.  The nasty noils that caused me stress but ended up being quite a nice, if not intentional, addition to the yarn.

It may have lots of noils, but it’s really knitting up nicely. Here’s mitt #1. It’s quite an elegant thing.  When I am finished the pair I’ll do a full on post about the pattern and such.   But for now, this is a quickie.
