Thumbs Up!

I finished the thumb on the second mitten in no time;
why do we dread doing something at times?!
I was able to follow my notes
and changes to the thumb portion of the pattern--
I know better than thinking I would remember what I had done on the first one!

This is the Hansa Mittens
knit in KnitPicks' Palette yarn
on #1 needles
size large

It certainly satisfied the colorwork itch!


  1. I am guessing these will be a gift for someone? They certainly look too warm for your Florida climate. LOL

    They are beautiful. I love the burgundy cuff as contrast!

  2. Wow, they are fantastic! I know what you mean though about dreading things and then they are not as bad as we thought... well done for finishing them! xx

  3. Absolutely beautiful - the rounded thumbs look much better than the original.

  4. Love them, especially the rounder thumb!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!


 I'm taking along these newly machine knit pieces  (all together, I've knit 2 right fronts, 1 left front, a back and 4 sleeves!...
