love to my bloggy friends ❤

Okay it is finally time for me to show off this FO. For some reason(s), like being sick, being away, being lazy, etc. I have never shown a full photo of these! Which is a shame because they are full of happy. In fact, I named them Cheery Men mittens! 1. They are cheery. 2. The yarn is called noro chirimen which I just though was really cute.

It’s a good thing too, because I was feeling like a major grump before writing this. I have so. much. bus. rage. I know I should just let those things go but…URHGHGHGH have some common decency people! It’s not that hard. Anyways I’m getting way off track, as usual…

The pattern is Camp Out fingerless mitts. I love this pattern! I could see myself making…hundreds of these. It’s crazy. Although after my second pair (which I’ve been like 5 rows away from finishing for.ev.er.) I’m going to take a wee break from them.

The yarn is Noro Chirimen as I mentioned earlier. It is a silk wool cotton blend, and actually quite soft. I find Chirimen is less scratchy than say…Kureyon. Which I like. I find it weird that Chirimen is MUCH less popular…a whopping 700 projects on ravelry versus 35,000. & 1 online buying option as opposed to 19. It’s weird. and although this is a “dk” i say it knits up like a worsted, and some spots are definitely aran or heavier.

also, as you can see, 1 skein contains a variety of crazy colors. Sometimes I can’t believe these mitts are from the same skein.

but they are.

POW!

Right?

I knit these puppies up according to pattern on a size 6. I highly highly recommend the pattern to everyone! I get cold hands knitting / typing which causes them to get sore really quickly. These solve that issue for me!

I ❤ them.

& I ❤ all of your projects too, so I’m going over to Tami’s now to check em all out!

FOfriday
