These mittens were an adventure to knit!

The yarn is considered second-quality yarn, and is recommended for bags and the like, not for garments you’d have against your skin. To heck with that, I knitted mittens anyway.

The yarn had several knots in it, and I cut them out when I encountered them. I just knitted two strands together for a few knits to join in after the cut, and it worked fine.

In order to get the pair of mittens, I ended up knitting 4 mittens in total. The first mitten, I knitted on US7 and it ended up being too small. So I ripped it out and knitted it on US8. Perfect fit. I knitted the 2nd mitten (from a 2nd ball) on US8 and it was too small. So I ripped it out and knitted it on US9 and it fit fine. In the end, that wasn’t a big deal since the mittens knit up pretty quickly.

Knitting on Marblz needles instead of Cubics was definitely easier for this yarn.

I was honored that Darn Good Yarn featured my FO on their FB page, Instagram, and in their email newsletter. Tammy put it on the Marly Bird page, too. Very cool. :)
