Sixty patterns this book may have but I bought the book for only one. The Birdcage Mittens by Elli Stubenrauch called to me.
My version is made from Peaceable Acres worsted and Aussi Yarn, both from the stash. I have a hate-hate relationship with that Aussi Yarn. That Aussi stuff is splitty and it's knotted to make the yardage and it's a little rough. If someone offered me my weight in Aussi Yarn, I'd turn them down.
Okay, first I'd try bargaining before I turned down the gift. I'd try for half my weight in Noro Kureyon. One-quarter in Koigu KPPM?
So, mittens made, I had just the person to give them to. My younger daughter is making a flying visit home from college for Fall break. And so I thumbed through the 60 Quick Knits and I made her a hat.
