The title of this post sounds like a tongue twister:
“I have one knitted mitten knitted with four knitting needles. If I hadn’t knitted the mitten with four knitting needles, it won’t be my four needles knitted mitten.”
Phew! I had a hard time even writing that! 🙂
Yesterday I went to a workshop in one of my favorite shops here in Barcelona: Nido de abeja. The class was about knitting with double point needles. I’d never knitted in the round with that kind of needles so I had to try.
This was the result after 4 hours…
I know, I know. It’s not the best mitten in the world… but providing it was my first experience with that kind of knitting I think it’s not that bad. Yeah… the thumb is a little shorter… because it was lunch time and I wanted to finish it so I skipped some rows… ^_^U
Anyway, I enjoyed the process very much and I spent a lovely morning with very nice people.
Here are some images of the process:
Another thing I learned is that I was unawarely knitting the English way, as opposed to the Continental way which seems to be the usual one here…
Have a look at this video if you didn’t know the difference either.
I guess I’ll give a shot to the Continental style… at least this way I’ll be able to decide which one I like the most from experience.
Which one do you prefer?
