Start of project: November 2, 2014

It was a mitt - weekend for sure. Once the Lady Grey mitts were done I decided that I needed another pair of wrist warmers without thumbs or anything.
The Feather and Fan wrist warmers I knit in July have been worn many times but I always regretted that they were slightly too tight. So I took the other left over from my Paddle mitts and started a new pair. I cast on 36 stitches with 4.5 mm needles and then I continued with 4 mm needles. (The first pair had been knit all with 3.5 mm). I had an excellent time on the balcony, reading Orange is the New Black in the sunshine while they were growing.
I am happy with how they turned out, they are much loser and somehow
also much longer (even though I did 13 pattern repeats again - must be
the more intense blocking).
Now I only need to get rid of my mitt addiction ;-)
I will share this with Marisa's Auf den Nadeln im November even though the wrist warmers are already off the needles and on my arms ;-)
