My holiday quickie

70-yard mitts malabrigo twist

Despite working quite a bit this weekend (lots brewing around here), I did manage to squeeze in a quickie of a knitting project. To no one’s great surprise, it’s a pair of fingerless mitts! These are Hannah Fettig’s perfect little 70-Yard Mitts again, but this pair is for me — using the “Applewood” Malabrigo Twist left over from El Fringe. They came in mighty handy for our blustery Labor Day block party.

  1. Applewood!! One of my favorite Malabrigo colors! These are perfect Karen! I bought the yarn for my first pair of wristers this past weekend….yep, never tried them before either, haha. THESE look like the perfect size, and your knitting is just exquisite.

      • I have one, yes. But now I like this one to start with. It’s a great use for my Malabrigo stash :)

          • LOL! Me too!!

            Fingers crossed I can do it! I hope so, because I absolutely love these. I need several pair :)

          • You totally can. And I’m happy to help if you have any questions along the way.

            I also want to note for anyone reading this that I think of this as the gateway to sweater knitting. Just think about it: This is a tiny top-down turtleneck. (That happens to have only one arm.)

          • Ahhh, wow, I didn’t think of it like that, but it makes perfect sense. Now I NEED to master these :) I have 2 sweaters waiting.

            Thank you Karen, I may have to take you up on your offer to help. Finishing the Bosc scarf in leftover Malabrigo worsted today, then starting your wristers. Thanks again!
