red mittens

29 Oct


the chilly weather reminded me of the mittens i made for a friend (declared almost too warm!) last fall, so i went ahead and started a pair for myself. a movie got me this far:



yarn: eskimo from garnstudio

pattern: drops 19/93

colour: #8

hooksize: 7 mm

getting the gauge right with these stiches (chain stiches) has been a little troubling, i find it very easy to crochet way too tightly. which makes it a little hard to do get the hook through. but i think i finally got it right, which means i have to make the first mitten again…. oh, well! i’ve learned to be a patient crafter over the years 🙂
