Lookit, A Mitt!

Real-life version of the 1890's Lady's Mitt, except instead of knitting it in nice Andalusian wool and black silk I've gone and crapped it all up by using a thrift-store skein of Red Heart Luster Sheen. Jebus. Hopefully they don't make this stuff anymore.

Shut up! It's a practice pair, OK! I'm trying to decide whether to spin up some nice black alpaca for a pair since I didn't have any black wool that thin.

US size 0 double pointed needles. I'm guessing this could even take a size 00.

I would have gotten further or even finished the fool thing and started the second but I went out in the wind and the rain with co-workers after work and we got snozzled. I can't knit snozzled.

Those are gorgeous! I can't wait to see the handspun alpaca version of them - you'll never be able to take them off though, for fear of someone snatching them up and running off!!

Oooh, or maybe handspun yak with silk trim...

I love your mit. It's beautiful. I just found your pattern on AntiCraft, and I love it!

You just can't do anything on larger needles, can you? I am pretty sure you're a masochist. I can offer you a very promising treatment. It involves rubber hoses, ice baths, whirling, bloodletting, consumption of laudanum and total social isolation. It is guaranteed to cure you of your hysteria and you will soon fetch a husband and give him many children until you die of puerperal fever after giving birth! What more could a girl want?
