I did end up frogging the mittens from the last post.
On Thursday I bought some new ( to me ) wool and started again on 2.5mm needles.
I am enjoying this so much more.
I like the colours better and the size of needle suits me better.
Of course, I didn’t swatch but these seem to be knitting up to a better size for me.
I think I am 1-2st out on gauge. I would much prefer them to be roomy so I can live with it being slightly out. I have tried it on the best I can with dpn’s there and its fine.
The wool is, King Cole, merino blend 4 ply and its lovely.
Spillyjaneknits is almost ready according to her twitter feed to release her next free pattern, Camilla.
I have been stalking her Ravelry page for this so today I am going to try to order some more wool in readiness.
