Well, the weather in Atlanta doesn’t really justify knitting mittens right now but it is still January which means it’s time for the NaKniMitMo Knitalong. I decided to knit Wood Hollow Mittens by Kirsten Kapur. I’m using Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca Yarn in this pretty magenta color.
This little guy is hanging out with me while I knit:
The pattern is fairly easy … an eight row pattern repeat with cables … There was a twisted stitch that was described to be knit without the help of a cable needle but I found it easier to use a cable needle. I made a slight modification at the top to adjust the length without finishing another 8 row repeat. Overall, an enjoyable and quick knit. I’m hoping to cast on the second one this afternoon while at my daughter’s dance rehearsals.
