Japanese Wave Mittens by Maya Poffenberger
My trip to ICELAND!
Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
175 yards = 1.24 skeins
Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair
81 yards in stash
0.42 skeins = 59.0 yards (53.9 meters), 24 grams
Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair
164 yards in stash
0.82 skeins = 116.0 yards (106.1 meters), 47 grams

These should not have taken me as long as they did, but as soon as the cool weather came in, I was able to knit with this toasty wool. It made a really warm pair of mitts, which will be perfect for my trip to Iceland in April :)

I have enough yarn left to make a hat, so stay tuned for that project staring in January.

10/21- Blocking! After they dry I need to sew in the ends… and that’s it!

I even have enough yarn left to make a matching hat…..

8/26- just an update….
This is not a complicated project, at all. It is my first stranded project, however, and I ran out of time in the spring before the weather got too hot for me to handle worsted wool.
