Cheers to you!

I renamed the Drinkers Mitts: Cheers to You! Mitts

I really enjoyed knitting these.  The only issue was finding the right (or close enough) colors in my stash.  Most of the yarn is Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight yarn.  The beer mugs at the top are knit from an acrylic yarn that just didn’t seem to get along with the wool blend after blocking the mitts and want to recede into the background.  My ribbing isn’t as nice as I wish.

My friend liked them.  A lot.  I wish I would have gotten a picture of her modeling them.  But alas I didn’t.

Apart from the background color change, the Cosmopolitan drink (?) is now a Margarita as the pink I had didn’t go with the red.  If I make these again, I would add a row or two of plain knitting between the beer mugs and the ribbing.  Maybe it was using two different yarns (acrylic and wool) that caused the less than perfect transition.

  1. I think you may want to have the finger part a little tighter like you did. That part probably would get a little stretched out. I think they turned out very very nice! Lucky friend!
