I know most people suffer from 2nd sock syndrome, well I suffer from 2nd mitt syndrome.. so I found a cure, simply make one pattern that I like, try a new pattern straight after 1st mitt I've made and the by the time the 1st one of the 2nd new pair is completed, I'm ready to go back and make the 2nd one of the first pair... If you get my meaning....? Huh Cheesy

Hence today's post: Mermaid Mitt from pattern on Raverly Nereid, made with Pixie Green Splish Splash 100% Cotton, 4ply.

1st mitt started 03/02/10 - finished 06/02/10.

Palm Shot

This one is also from Raverly Regina pattern cable, I think its called so I renamed it Withered Heath Heather Mitts,

I used RYC Classic Siena Thunder cashmere soft, its lovely to knit with, creates and even fabric over the palm of the hand,

1st Mitt started 09/02/10 - finished 12/02/10
 I did modify the thumb, I used the thumb from Nereid, as I prefer it, I kept the extra plain rnds to lengthen it slowly, and I love the result. Both we made with 2.5mm DPNS. Comments welcome.

my sister is currently suffering from second mitt syndrome. it may or may not have something to do with the amoutn of patience that has already been expended trying to teach me to knit, but who am i to say?

i loooove the first pair. lovely :]

Those who say it can't be done shouldn't interrupt the person doing it.
