Interior thoughts on a knitting project

  1. I wish I had figured out how long the thumbs would be before knitting these mittens.birdinhand-stump
  2. I want to redo the Bird in Hand Mitts again, in a smaller scale (extra small here I come)
  3. I’d love to shorten the fingers and thumbs (but they’ve already felted beyond the ability to tink back).
  4. I wish I had known how great this wool would be — I would have acquired Foxfire Fiber Cormo Silk Alpaca for a hat and cowl.
  5. The colors I used were aster and white.

The wool just gets lovelier as I keep wearing the mittens. And the mittens are the perfect thing to wear on your hands during our deep freeze winters. But if I lived in Wisconsin or Michigan right now –> thrums would be better. They “marinated” in the projects pile since 2010 (started while watching the Olympics). This year, other projects that have been malingering are getting done.

    They are beautiful and we put so much of ourselves – our thoughts, feelings, moods – into a project such as this. Enjoy them!
