One mitt is smaller than the other - so they're useless as a set... but which one do I frog???
My plan is to knit a THIRD mitt, and see which ones match best!
Do you see the little green bag in the photo?
That's another one of Dawnie's creations
- it's for keeping my yarn neat and clean and tidy as I work...
And if I want to work outside, or on the move... I just pop the drawstring around my wrist and off I go - no yarn trailing behind me to get tangled.
Anyone would think she had witnessed my yarn rolling around on the floor as I work on a project!
So this clever bag is made using a plastic bowl.
Dawn has drilled holes all the way around it
- and then crocheted into the holes to work the rest of the bag.
At the top is a drawstring closure. How cool is that???
(It's probably, maybe a teensy weensy bit on the PLAIN side for me - but I'll fix that - and Dawnie won't mind a bit. She's used to me by now, and knows exactly what I'm like. In fact, she's more likely to be SHOCKED that I haven't done it already.)
Edited to add:
I've just had an email from one of my readers, which I'd really like to share with you (and I don't think she'll mind at all)
So... I'm going to start thinking along those lines when I next pick up my mitts, and see if it helps. Thanks for the tip Steph - and by including it here in the blog, I hope it can help others too!I taught myself to knit and wanted to suggest what helped me. Continental method is the closest to how you would hold crochet;the project in your left hand with the working thread wrapped around one of those fingers for tension while you knit with the needle on the right.Once I thought of it in those terms my tensions became the same throughout.
