Something New

I got a last minute knitting request from Caleb, and while I explained that no, I could not make him another blanket in time for Christmas of this year (that kid seriously loves blankets), I could make him some fingerless mitts.  He chose Fightin’ Words, and when I showed him the Loopy Ewe Solid Series color cards, he picked out his colors.  He also suggested that I make some for Mickael too, so I got some sport weight yarn to make a second pair.

I’m using my Heavy Metals and magic looping and it’s working really well.  The practically non- existent joins and the perfect tips are wonderful to work with.  I’m honestly wondering why they don’t make a set of double points in the Heavy Metals.  I’d love to knit socks with these!  I started these yesterday afternoon after we finished school for the day and they’re zipping right along.  I’m pretty happy with my tension on these.  I don’t know if I’ve mentioned how I do stranded color work before, but I hold both yarns in my left hand.  Some people work with a yarn in each hand, but holding them both in my left hand (I knit Continental) works really well for me.

I knit my continental fair isle the same way. I've tried two handed but prefer holding both together. I've been thinking about knitting those same mitts. They look so fun but not sure I need them where I live now.

I just got a set of the heavy metal interchangables and will use them for socks (magic looping). Have you tried Signature Needle Arts dpns? I love those for socks too. Your mittens look great. :) (stumbled across your blog while researching knitting software)
