Last weekend I started my first stranded colour-work project. Since I followed the herd instinct of the knitting community I am now singed up over at Ravelry and stumbled upon the Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang.
I’m knitting the medium size but they look suspiciously small and narrow. If they don’t fit they may end up on my Christmas gift pile (which is still nonexistent).
After I attached the contrast colour things got crazy – I can’t knit with the yarns in both hands as recommended – and I ended up with tangled yarns and frayed nerves. Enter Norwegian knitting thimble to the rescue! Now it works! I have to change to a soothing stockinette sock from time to time, though…
