Knitting Notes

 

Pattern: Kensington Mitts by Annie Modesitt from Jane Austen Knits 2011 
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in the cordovan colorway
Needles: Size 4 DPNs
My Kensington mitts are done, and boy do they take terrible pictures.    You really need to be wearing these to appreciate them – it stretches the pattern out nicely, and the ribbed section in the middle doesn’t nip in a freakish manner.   But I digress…
This was a decently easy pattern.    The twisted stitch used to create the bends for the elbow took me a little bit to wrap my head around, though once I figured it out, it was super easy, if a bit too stretchy until I got another few rows down after it was done.    Overall, it’s a interesting pattern, and does look nice.
I’ll leave off the raptures about the Malabrigo yarn.    I’ve gone there before, and nothing has changed.
