This week I finally finished up my Bird in Hand mittens. Making one mitten was a lot of fun. Making two became a labor of love. There is no denying that these will get a lot of use here in Nebraska, though. I'm also confident a state fair ribbon will adorn these lovelies in the coming weeks.
I love the inside of the mittens. I carried the two strands of yarn all the way through so they are double thick. Double thick Malabrigo. If you aren't a yarnie, just know that this is GOOD...VERY GOOD! There is a picot edge at the bottom that I adore.
Do you see the birdie? He is so cute. I didn't finish these before dark so apologies for my cruddy pictures.
The yarn I used for this project was Malabrigo Worsted in Taureg and Natural. I have enough left to make a headband or scarflette.
Do you have a project you'd like to share this week for I Made it Myself? Take a look at the guidelines and post away! We'll be here every Monday.
