Progress

This two-handed knitting is getting easier.  Not sure if I'm doing it 'right' or not but the rows are going faster and it looks the way it's supposed to.  What more could I ask?


I'm pretty happy with these little squirrels.  Aren't they cute?  The rest of the mitten is snowflakes and will be done today.  Then I can start on the second one and have two warm mittens before it gets cold again.  It's always colder in January here. 

Then, I'm dreaming of the Meditation Mitts in pink and gray.  OK,  I admit it.  I may be hooked already on a technique I was never going to do again - ever.  Eggplant magic, for sure..

What a lovely pattern. And you'll enjoy them even more because they're a symbol of mastering a new skill. Congratulations!

They are amazing! I love everything about them!!! The little squirrels are yoo cute, they even have little eyes!! And I love the snowflakes. too! I always have such a hard time choosing what is my favorite, you make such beautiful things. No one else will have mittens anything like these.

I love your quirders (my son's name for squirrels when he was just a wee lad)!

I think you should knit a pair of fair isle mitts in aubergine as a nod to the whole eggplant thing.

They'll be beautiful AND warm, or, as your header says, not only beautiful but useful.
Congrats on mastering the technique, you should feel a rightful sense of pride.
