A couple of weeks ago I agree to do a test knit for ‘torirot designs’ for some fair isle mitts. Finally finished today and it’ll be a long while before I ever work on such a small project on double-point needles for a while. Talk about fiddly.
I mostly used Jamieson and Smith yarn for the mittens. The white was Knitpicks Palette and it is a smoother yarn to work with. The J&S is the best for knitting Fair Isle as it’s Shetland wool and Shetland yarn is more wiry so the fibres tend to stick together better and fill in the spaces between stitches for a more even look.
Now that I’ve gotten that project out of the way I’m starting in on my Christmas sewing projects namely a quilt I have planned for Chase. Once I get that done I’ll be happy, happy, happy (I’ve been watching a lot of Duck Dynasty lately, lol).
