End of Endpaper
Pattern: Endpaper Mitts
Yarn: Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift; 25 g Shetland Black (101) and 25 g Peach (440). One ball of each made two medium size fingerless mitts and left me with ample left overs.
Needles: 2 mm bamboo DPNs for ribbing and 3 mm bamboo DPNs for colour work.
New Skills Acquired: Italian Tubular Cast-On & Tubular Bind Off.
I used my left over yarn to do a sample swatch for the Autumn Rose Pullover and I found that 3.25 mm needles give me the required row and stitch gauge so I'm now all set to cast on for this sweater. Hurrah.
And a picture of the inside of my mitts for my mother:
