Another Finished Project!

I finished my mittens for Loopy Academy yesterday!  I made flip top mittens from Three Irish Girls Glenhaven Cashmerino Worsted in Aileen.  I started with the Urban Necessity Gloves pattern, but the shaping on those didn’t work with my hands so I ended up making my own modifications.  I guess the designer and I have differently shaped hands.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to have enough yarn to finish these, but fortunately, I had enough with a tiny bit left over.  They’re knit at a pretty tight gauge, which will make them warmer on my hands.  I plan to wear them when I run.  I’ll be able to flip the tops back and use my fingers to control my music and deal with Runkeeper (the app I use when I run) on my iPhone, but then I can tuck my fingers back into the tops to keep them toasty while I’m running.  If my hands get hot, I can flip the tops back again.  Of course it’s supposed to be a lot warmer on Friday morning, but I’m pretty sure that after the temps we’ve had the last coupe weeks, I’ll be able to get a lot of wear out of these.

I’ve now completed the cowl and mitts for Loopy Academy, Freshman Year, First Semester.  The only thing remaining is the hat and that should work up pretty quickly!
