DH and I were not exchanging holiday gifts this past year. So when I found out that I was getting a "non-gift exchange gift," I thought I should whip up something quick for him.
He commented that he liked the Maine Morning Mitts by Clara Parkes I knit for myself.
I used KnitPicks Swish worsted held with the Alpaca Pete's Alpaca yarn on a size 5 needle. I wanted these to be very tight knit. The fabric is so tight, these stand up on their own. See?
I think they look like a Yule Log without the mushrooms.
I lengthened the wrist part a bit much but DH will be able to turn them into a cuff and that should work nicely.
