Strawberry fields mittens are so cute I just couldn’t wait to have them…
And so, I HAD TO KNIT THEM !
3 achievements for me here :
– Being able to follow a pattern (not that difficult if you’re already used to mix colors while knitting)
– Follow a pattern, in English is even tougher for me (but learning and getting better at it !) 🙂
– but also, not to forget : actually FINISH a project I’ve started… yes, I’m that kind of personn, but getting so much better at it though 🙂
It took me a while to find my way in this pattern, switching colors, but finally, I’ve managed a good balance between knitting continental and knitting british with these mittens : one color on the right hand, and one color on the left hand !
Easy, fast, and when I’ve started to knit the second mitten, I was already faster at it ! 🙂
I had some trouble with the braid thing at the end of it, but I’m not picky : I like the way I’ve managed to finish my mittens (I’m not objective either : I love these mittens so much !)
So here we go, how they look like ! 🙂
Perfect for me, now I just can’t wait for Winter ! 🙂
but will stay laying on the grass in the sun until then 😉
