My only complaint? I wouldn't recommend knitting two at a time from opposite ends, unless you plan to knit two pairs.
|One very navy, and one very pink|
My first two Smashed Grapes Fingerless Mitts/Gloves from a skein of malabrigo rios yarn in the color way Purpuras.
While knitting at my weekly knitting group, one of my friends, who knows I tend to be very matchy with my knitting, asked, "are you okay with how those are turning out?" Also, while knitting these mitts, the Yarn Harlot had a similar issue with fingerless' for her daughter.
After I completed the first pair, I brought out my scale to see if I had enough to knit a second pair and I had more than enough!
|Closer, but still one more pink, one more navy|
Switch-o/change-o and here we go:
These mitts have a deadline. I plan on giving them as thank you gifts to my assistants and my doctor. I return to work on October 24, and have a doctor's visit October 25. Yesterday I cast on my third pair Argos Iris Smashed Grapes and, do you notice another trend!?
Because of the deadline for all the fingerless', all other projects are on the back burner. That includes Liz's Cowl (deadline December only 20 grams of yarn left), my Birch Leaf Shawl (which I'd like to take on our honeymoon in December), and my Lucy cardigan (no "deadline" but would be nice to when I return to work later this month).
