Susan asked me if I would test knit these mittens for her, and of course I said YES!
I think this is a great idea, using Morse code to "write" on your mittens. I made the small size, which spells "Anastasia". Size L and M have their own word. You can make up your very own word if you like too, because the pattern gives you the alphabet in morse code. Really cool!
I made size S so they would fit Hannah, and she said she liked them very much, when I sent her a picture of them.
What's not in the pattern is the contrast yarn for cast on. I was just trying out some different things. The right mitten looks better I think.
pattern: Morse Mitts by Susan Mehringer
yarn: Jojoland Wool Yarn Fingering Solids (almost solid, the color does go from light to darker)
needles: 2.25mm & 2.5mm
But you know what? As if it was not enough to be test knitting these mittens, look what was in the mail yesterday!
That's right! Get green around your noses, because Susan sent me this Wollmeise yarn as a thank you gift! In GREEN! My favorite color! (O.K. she asked me what color I'd like). :o)
THANK YOU, SUSAN!
Oh boy, that will be such a treat to knit with this Wollmeise. I think I already know which pattern it will be, but it's not released yet.
In case you are wondering, Maggie is back to her usual self. No limping whatsoever! You should have seen her last night, doing the puppy run, bouncing off the sofa backs, and jumping around like a monkey. It's a wonder she does not hurt herself more often. This dog seriously needs a chill pill! When the boys are sleeping, exhausted from playing, Maggie still has energy left, to play on her own with chew toys, rolling on her back and holding them with her front paws. Sweet to look at. Thanks for all your well wishes!
