Ah, a nice, quick, cheery project in an energizing green. What could be more refreshing after miles of chunky brown?
Now, I am no fool. I know my absurdly short attention span, so I’m doing both of these mitts at once on a long circ rather than the single straight needle called for in the instructions.
And I’ll admit, I’m more than a bit nervous that I don’t have sufficient yarn. This may be a nail-biter up until the end--I’ll just think of it as a way to keep the knitting exciting, yes?
I do like how it knits up, with just the tiniest bit of color variation so that the casual observer won’t mistake these for something I picked up at Wal-Mart.
There’s no avoiding, however, how very green these are. Almost neon. I’m thinking I may need to do the wrist-bands and buttons in a different color, not only to make them appropriate for someone my age, but also because I may not have enough yarn. White? Pink? Black? I think that choice may be dictated by the buttons I get (which I don’t have yet).
For now, I’ll keep knitting. And go off in search of buttons. Stay tuned to see what turns up!
