I've been to two evenings at Stitch N Knit, which is part of Mulgrave Makers Market, last time we were taught by the lovely and patient Mary how to crochet finger-less mitts. Mine are below, quick little project and fun to make. A couple of new techniques were learned (foundation single crochet for starting work off instead of a chain + how to finish off nicely + how to decrease without any GAPS!), I wonder how long I'll retain those for...
and then of course I am asked, can I have some too mumma x 2. The ones below are for bells, who also wanted a few flowers on hers, I did not choose the location of the flowers, I was under instruction. For both mine & bells' mitts I used Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8ply Alpaca Wool.
Yesterday I went to Wondoflex to get some wool for flip's mitts and I couldn't go past these cute little wooden buttons, they are 1.5cm in diameter. Of course I have no idea what to use them on, but they are now in my possession.
This is the wool I chose for flip, it was half price - nice.
I love the hint of grey, lovely wool to crochet with.
