All the SG-1 love is awesome! I mean, it certainly stayed on the air for ten seasons for a reason, but still. That 200th episode? Hi-larious. I’m alllmost tempted to go back through for a handful of favourite episodes, but I might wait on that a while.
Anyway, finally off the needles are the DK-weight mittens I wrote about awhile back. I actually colour corrected these photos so you can see the proper colours – a great plum and a neutral beige. I used Tanis Yellow Line DK weight for these, less than half a skein of each colour!
I knit the outer mittens really fast, as stranded colourwork often is. Then I had the whole ripping and reknitting of the linings a bunch of times. Then I stalled out on the thumbs – they were done except for the lining thumbs for ages before I finally picked them up again this weekend. And you know what? They definitely weren’t as bad as I thought they were going to be, although I did need to change to double points when the magic loop just wasn’t working for me.
As for the cursed lining, the frustration was totally worth it. Double thick mittens lined in cashmere? Yes please. And I only used 15g of laceweight cashmere for the linings! And just in time for a forecasted snowy week.
