kniiting time of late has involved a fair bit of pattern testing; some for me and some for others.
this is one of someone else's; uber cute little mitts in 8 ply yarn for kiddies by Shortly.These are an awesome little knit, very quick and used somewhere between 30 and 40 grams of wool; hard to tell on my very retro and cool as scales, but not highly accurate for little numbers like that.
I am really honoured that Sheryl has named these the milo mitts, as the cable on them matches the milo vest. How cool is that!! This little pattern will be available some time this month, so keep an eye out for it.
You should also check out some of Shortly's other designs on Rav, she has some awesome sock patterns. One of my next cast ons will be the toddler socks for Lily.
I knit them on my teeny tiny 9 inch(23cm) circular needle which was heaps of fun. I think I actually like the HiyaHiya more than the addis for short length circs as the tips are so short. The 9 inch was just as easy, if not easier, as the 12 inch addis.
