This was a fun pattern and used less than a ball of Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight yarn. This Duchess Heather is a rich, royal heathery purple. I probably used a bit more than half. (I so need a scale!)
The finished mitts look rather nondescript until on the hand. The ribbing adds a nice vertical detail.
Since both mitts are the same (no difference between the left and right ones), it’s quite easy to get into the rhythm and finish them quickly.
After I retired (and had a change in some medication – meaning I had to change to a not-so-great insurance plan), I gained 20 pounds. Happy? Not in the least.
Anyway, I’ve been doing these “Workweek Hustle” events with some other Fitbit users.
These have really helped me get out of my favorite knitting chair and move. I only know one of the people in this group but that really didn’t matter. What did matter was that I was motivated again to do something about the extra pounds.
And last week I won!
Big time won! Personal best week!!
I just need to keep walking to reach my goal of losing ten pounds by July 4th. The only downside to this fabulousness is not much knitting. I haven’t figured out how to walk and knit at the same time without doing any damage to the knitting or myself.
