Yesterday I finished my “Hermione Mitts”… just in time as the weather turned from pleasant warm late automn sunshine to foggy cold Halloween rain.


Hermione Mitts

For my mitts I modified that pattern I used for the Hermione Hat, I did some weeks ago. I worked it on 48 stitches with k1, p1 rib around for about 5 cm. The actual pattern I only worked on the front side of the mitt with 14 stitches: k4, p5, k6, p5, k4 following the instructions from the Hermione Hat pattern exactly. (The other side is just plain knit)

For the increase: knit two rounds plain after ribbing, then begin increases; knit two rounds plain, then increase two stitches on right side and two stitches on left side. Repeat for a total of three times, ending with increase round. Then, *knit two rounds pain. Next round: increase two stites at thumb. Work k2tog YO twice at opposite side of the mitten. Repeat from * for a total of three times. (Thanks so much, Kara for sorting out my knitting instructions! 😀 )

I just love the way it turned out. They are just a tiny bit too large for my hands, but that probably makes them just extra comfy! 😀

Apart from knitting I’ve lately become addicted to playing Trainyard. It’s awesome and lots of fun! One of the best puzzle games ever and it lets you upload your solutions. I just love comparing my with those of others. Here are mine… all of them are of course the only proper way of solving the puzzles: http://www.trainyard.ca/4jtx

Also I’m thinking about doing another short German solo, now that my Struwwelpeter solo is done. I want it to be done in time for Christmas… but I’m not telling yet, what it is going to be! 😉
