Hide the Rum!


Finished are my Pirate mittens from helloyarn.com. These were done in a dyed yarn from KnitPicks, but it was more a fingering weight than the sport weight called for in the pattern. A little felting did help to make them a little more on the dense side. They were fun, I have several requests from family members for ones. This is going to involve adapting the pattern for an adult size as the beggars were all adults. I think it's a little easier to adjust gauge on a hat than mittens with the larger number of stiches.

The girl loves the new mittens. Pink pirate mittens--who could blame her?
