Smitten with Mittens
I have finished the Smitten and matching Mittens for a friend at work. I did "His" side of the smitten in blue and "Her" side in a purpley/pink mix. The mittens match their side of the smitten. The yarn I used was Cherry Tree Hill yarn (Twister?) in 75% Merino Wool and 25% Superwash. I used 1/2 a hank of each color.
The Smitten pattern is from One-Skein Wonders and the mittens are from Knitters Handy Book of Patterns.
I hadn't used the Knitters Handy Book of Patterns since I got it.... it seemed a little too complicated for a very beginning knitter. I've since looked at it again and can't believe I haven't used it before now. It's wonderful!
