Yesterday when I checked my account at The Loopy Ewe, and checked the tracking on my package of mitten yarn, I knew that it would be delivered by early afternoon. I happened to be down near the mail box when the mail lady arrived and as she handed me the package, she said “Not more yarn??” I now feel like I’m answering to her and to Vince for my yarn purchases. She was just joking and most of the time, he is not joking about my yarn purchases. Besides, if I can get these mittens made quickly, one pair will go to the mail lady!
That Super Bulky yarn is . . well, it’s super bulky! And I hope that means it will be super quick to knit up.
Here it is compared to the sock yarn I usually use.
But, look at the difference in the needles I’ll use for the bulky weight vs. the sock yarn needles.
2.25 mm needles for the socks and 8 mm needles for the mittens.
This will be my first time to knit mittens. Wish me luck!
