Bunny (+ Noro) Mittems

I envy the people with so much knitting time! Here is the latest item I have finished - a pair of

mittens. The base is Tahki Bunny, I had just one ball and tried fingerless mitts to see how I like them. I think my hands are too small to enjoy them as most of my fingers are still on the cold steering wheel. So I unpicked the bind-off, took out the ribbing, and finished each one with some leftover Kochoran (I think, maybe it was Transitions) from another A4A item, and finished the thumbs as well. These are SO soft!

I have one of the superchunky sweaters OTN, using multiple strands of yarn to reach gauge. Very slow going but I hope to get a bunch done on Sunday and get these in the mail along with the other mittens and vest already finished. I am on the yoke of the sweater - wish me luck!

good luck. I'll be working in the Basement on March 2nd. Looking forward to seeing it then!

Best of Luck! I'm a slow knitter so I know how hard it is to feel like you're making progress. I've been searching YouTube to learn a faster technique for making stitches. Since this is my school vacation week I hope to be 'speed knitting' by Friday!
