Knitting Olympics

I've decided to take The Yarn Harlot up on her Knitting Olympics challenge. When my Mother and I were in Leavenworth I got this book of old patterns of gloves and mittens. The pattern is difficult to understand, but I've been wanting to try these fingerless mittens with a mitten hood. Hard to explain, but they are basically like a convertable mitten. I've never done mittens before, and will have to learn several new things on this project.

On the snapdragon front, I did finish the second sock, and I am on to my Mother's colorway of the same pattern.

You are not the only one having trouble with Silky Wool breaking. I've been sewing up a hat and it has broken at least 3 times. I instantly thought of you. It isn't very sturdy yarn so using it over and over, like sewing it, must weaken it. Hope to see you at Guild tomorrow night. Patti
