Lazy Weekend

Yeah, I used the excuse of the storm yesterday to hide out at home. It was nice. Friday night, I started in on my Christmas knitting. I'm making multiple pairs of the Anemoi Mittens by Eunny Jang. I'm using size 1 (1.25mm) needles and it's a bitch. I'm limiting myself to about 10 rows a day so that I don't kill my hands. My progress so far:
Anemoi Mittens - Right - Back
The back of the right mitten
Anemoi Mittens - Right - Palm
The palm of the right mitten.


It's true, the corrugated rib makes the ribbing quite unstretchy. I can barely get it on my own hand. Good thing that the person this is for has smaller hands than me. Well, she is of a smaller stature so I sure as hell hope her hands are smaller than mine.

It is looking great so far. Are you still planning to use the Shelridge Farms? Are you using two circs?

These are looking good! I agree that the cuff is very unstretchy. I had to redo mine several times until it got over my hand!
