First, the swatches for my sweater! The pattern called for US10s, but I ended up getting gauge on US11s. I didn't really like how big that knitting was though, so I am knitting a size larger but on US10.5's and trying it on a lot as I go.
Whoot whoot! It's big enough to be an armpit/shoulder warmer!
On to the mittens... I am using a lovely Cascade 109, which has sadly been discontinued. I love this yarn :( I am either going to have to find a good replacement, or buy it all up before it disappears! Knitting this bulky wool on US8s makes really dense mittens. I'm very excited...
These have a nice, long cuff! I am almost done with the left mitten, and hope to have the right mitten done before my big V-Day Date!
