Yesterday I cast on my mitten project for The Woolly Thistle knit-along. Needle size 1.5 (cast on and now cuff ribbing), and size 2 for flower color-work cuff. Size 2.5 is called for, so I may go up a size for the hand. My trial knit for this Milet pattern was large.
My daughter helped to decide on colors – but we had to pick from the ones I already had because there was no time to order more.
Color switch: Maroon as main color for hand, with white. Blue flowers and accents in place of yellow. I have shared on Instagram and in the Ravelry TWT forum as was suggested. Yes, there are prizes to be given and lots of interesting patterns being knit. I’ve already found one to save for later.
