Knit the Stash - New Project 1

My first new project for Knit the Stash 2008 was a nice quick knit -

Super Mittens

Green Super Mittens
Wool: Araucania Nature Wool Chunky
Pattern: Super Mittens from Weekend knitting

Modifications: None yet, but I'm thinking about knitting a lining for these. While the yarn is nice and thick, these mitts are somewhat "airy". I think a nice lining would help - however, since I'm not buying any yarn, I have to think about what I have that I can use for the lining.

I'm also thinking about embroidering the back to give them more "visual interest".

Despite the modifications I would like to make, these mittens are, according to their pattern, DONE. Therefore I'm counting this as my first completed NEW project of Knit The Stash 2008.

  2. Those mittens are just SCREAMING out for big googly eyes. And some eyebrows. And possibly some fangs.

    Just sayin'.

  3. I agree with Canadian Sadie.

    What about lining them with some cozy polar fleece? Or Microfleece. It wicks away moisture, so your hands won't get sweaty.

    Love this idea for embroidery on your mittens... http://www.flickr.com/photos/14424545@N08/2192650792/in/pool-embroideredstuff/
