i did make a couple of modifications. i knit the ribbing to 1.5 inches and did the cuff for a total of 3.5 inches. i like my mittens to tuck into the sleeves of my coat rather then just sit at the edge. i also knit them using the magic loop method on US size 2 circulars.
i finished these mittens just in time to submit them for the into the wool spotlight kal and jane's LINDEN mittens kal. i just realized that you may not have heard of into the wool from me yet, but it's a knitting retreat that i am attending in may!!! my first ever!!!
thanks to jane for a great pattern and a fun kal!
public service announcement: knit picks is discontinuing their felici line so go grab some if you need to beef up your self-striping stash. you can't beat the prices! they no longer carry the sport weight but there is still a bit of fingering left.
by the way...i just looked outside and we are having a rain/snow mix....i'm cuddled up with my knitting, coffee, and a couple of daniel tiger episodes with the little man. enjoy your day!
