FO Friday: Mere’s Heart Mitts

I finished Mere’s Heart Mitts….

I am pleased with them as a project as a whole. I don’t like that I didn’t get the placement of the heart just perfect on the right mitt. But when you put them on it’s much less noticeable. (p.s. the app on my phone that mashes photos together is a great way to get photos of yourself wearing mitts if you don’t have a photography assistant handy)

These are pair of mitts of my own improvisation. My Ravelry pattern notes can be found here. I only used 1/3 of the skein so I have plenty to make a second set. But honestly….I don’t want to. This yarn is perfect for Mere. She is fun and spunky and just about the most beautiful person on the planet. I know she will love these. They are her…..just not me. If I knit them I honestly wouldn’t wear them. The highly variegated nature just doesn’t show the heart as well as I would like. And the colors don’t really match anything in my wardrobe.

I did some noodling on this because I still wanted to have something to “match” her so we could be hand knit buddies from across the country. I think I will make a pair of shorty socks with the remainder of the skein. I will work the heart chart into maybe the toe or possibly on top of the foot. I can wear any color inside my boots and then I will just feel the love on my toes instead of my fingers!

Now if you will excuse me, I need to get these babies wrapped up and ready to gift to Mere! Happy Knitting!!

  1. I hope your friend loves them! The short socks or (anything you like enough to wear, even if hidden from view) as your own half of a friend-love project with matching heart from the remaining yarn is a great idea. 😀
