The Mitten Got a Mate…

I finished the second mitten on Thursday night – no second mitten syndrome for me, but how can you get second mitten syndrome when it takes two hours to make one? They make a lovely pair! I have enough yarn to make a second set, but they can wait for a while. It’s finally not cold anymore! In the interim, these may go into the gift stash.

I enjoyed knitting on the size 13 dpns. A bit like spikes, yes, but they make the bulky projects go so fast! I’d never want a sweater this bulky, but for mittens, hats, and the like, it’s pretty much awesome.

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
