I've finally finished my Elphaba mittens.
pattern: Elphaba (rav link) by Valerie Johnson
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Barn Cat SS in colorway Sleepy Hollow, I used about half the skein, 80% merino 20% nylon
start-finish: October 27 - December 19
mods: they are fingerless mittens originally, with the chevron stitch pattern all over. I don't need fingerless mittens, and I got bored with the stitch pattern, so I decided to make them full mittens, and knit only in stockinette.
The yarn is self striping, which is nice, not many ends to weave in. I've already been using them. They are good for up to -10C, but I'll need thicker mittens once it's getting colder than that.
