FO Monday

This was supposed to be FO Friday (because I like alliteration.) Better late than never!

I think that’s actually the motto of these mitts. I started them during the 2017 Gift-along. So they’ve been a whole year in the making. The pattern is Wishmaker mitts. And I had some very personal wishes I was knitting into these mitts.

Life doesn’t always go according to plans. And while my wishes didn’t work out, these mitts sure did. They’re gorgeous.

I finished knitting them in July but then they just sat, ends not woven in, for months and months. I was in an emotional rough spot and I think these poor mitts got caught in the crossfire.

I’m finally starting to feel like I’m really back on my feet now. And this year with the GAL happening again I decided to weave in these ends and move on from these mitts.

I might need to knit some Mayfield mitts in 2019, just so I have a gorgeous pair of mitts I can actually keep.

  1. Love these! I think the random specks of color really add fun to the mitts, especially on the ‘flower’ side.
