I've been resting my shoulder (a little), doing stretches, and so on to keep it moving. I feel very lucky that my frozen shoulder healed so quickly, from what I've been hearing, that can take ages, and a lot of physiotherapy, and pain. Thank you all for your well wishes.
I couldn't look at my Galactic Melt left over yarn from the socks any longer. Once I pack it away it will not surface any time soon, so I was looking for a mitten pattern to use it all up.
I found the Muckle Mitts by Mary Jane Mucklestone, which was a free pattern some time ago, when I saved it.
I think they are cute, whether you do them in two colors or three or even four. What I don't like is the after thought thumb. The fit is not so good.
I also dislike knitting mittens with fingering weight yarn using 3.25mm and 3.5mm needles (for colorwork). It makes the knit fabric so loose.
I've knit the socks with 2.5mm if you remember, a fabric I like much, much better.
But, these are tiny mitts as it is. I had a hard time getting it on my hand. If I were to knit these again, using fingering weight yarn, I would add 6 sts (one repeat of the colorwork), or use thicker yarn and larger size needles. Anyway, I like how they look, and I know already someone with small, slender hands, which they will fit much better.
