Random knitting thoughts of the day

It would be good to remember you have massive hands BEFORE starting a pattern for mitts/gloves.
Unknitting stranded colourwork takes as long as knitting it in the first place.
The second time around is much quicker! 
These Mitts will be far from perfect, but I'm learning such a lot! 

Happy Monday 


  1. Ah just think how smug you will be when you wear them though....they are looking splendiferous already.....I like the colours you've chosen.

  2. Oh boy! Who would have thought of that as the sizes usually seem standard? So patient you are. You'll extra love those mitts in the end b/c of all that hard work.

  3. I'm sure they'll come out great the second time around! :)

  4. I have tried some colorwork once (it never got finish) and I made the mistake of knitting to tight. I will try again and try to knit with the yarn on both hands, but not anytime soon haha.

  5. It's a great idea to write these things down so you can remember them when the going gets tough! I love the look of these, by the way.

  6. Unknitting stranded knitting - now that sounds tough!

    Loving the look of these :)
