At long last I can unveil a bit of Christmas knitting. These are the Squirrel and Oak mittens from Hello Yarn.
It was my first true attempt at this type of knitting. In the past I would simply pick up each color as needed. This time however, Sue gave me a lesson in holding a strand in each hand.
I ended up knitting three of these. I was not completely satisfied with the first mitten that came off my needles – the yarn was not holding up well and I also felt that my stitches were a bit wonky.
I gifted them to my SiL who is thrilled with them!
