Made it!

With less than a metre of contrast green remaining, I breathed a big sigh of relief as I finished my Selbu mittens this week …

A good soak softened the cream Masham wool, which bloomed nicely and evened out the stranded knitting.

I didn’t manage to get the inner part of the thumb pattern to line up exactly, but hey, I won’t tell if you don’t!

I enjoyed making these very much and predict that there will be more on my needles in the future …

Have you finished any projects this week? I’d love to hear about them!

😀

    So glad – there’s nothing worse than being a metre short at the end of a project! Those are gorgeous, look good enough to eat. Btw: My admiration for Avi has grown – I just checked out the mittens she made for me like these, and she did manage to line up the inner thumb pattern. I wear them with awe.
