Fat Fridays: Chunky Garter Stitch Mittens

In community challenges, knitting, stash busting on October 2, 2015 at 6:44 pm

Bulky yarn is my favorite, especially when it comes from my stash. I doubled yarn to make it work for the chunky garter stitch mittens pattern.  I haven’t worked on these that long but I’m almost done! I’ve taken heed to all the advice given on Ravelry.  During meetings and at lunch, I’ve been knitting away, in preparation for the fall and winter.

When the days and nights get cooler, it’s often an indicator that knitting season has begun. The time is now, to gather patterns and yarn to keep us afloat through the brisk winds and snow of the  North Pole.

My knitting life has become about garter stitch and I’ve only now finally realized and accepted that it is all I can manage for now. I will learn to see the beauty in the simplicity of garter.
