Endpaper Mitts

I love how these turned out!

Endpaper Mitts

Endpaper Mitts

Oops, my inside is showing

Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Grignasco Bambi in turquoise (#193) and pale green (#189)
Needles: Bamboo DPNs 2.00mm for the ribbing, and 2.75mm for the rest
Modifications: None
Other notes: I did the increases using the yarn over method that Eunny described here, which was new to me, and I think it does make it look neater.

And here’s the state of pomatomus, one sock down, one sock to go. The yarn is Celia’s Basket handpainted sock yarn. It’s more variegated than what I originally intended for these socks, but I quite like it. So far there are no crazy pooling, and I think the colours are blending quite nicely.


Oh, and thank you very much for all the sewing book suggestions! I checked at my local library and found that they have the Reader’s Digest sewing book (one of the older editions), which I’ve borrowed and flipped through. It looks good indeed, and I think I’ll need to get myself a copy. I’d love to do more sewing this year, although I won’t neglect knitting that’s for sure! 🙂

Endpaper Mitts are awesome indeed. I just finished my first one in colors very similar to yours. Yours are lovely.

BrownPants says:

Lovely! Yarn for both of these projects arrived at my house recently, we have had similar knitting inspiration!

Sue says:

Endpaper Mitts look fantastic, and I love the colors you chose. Your socks look gorgeous, I have yet to try that pattern. Is it hard, it looks fairly complicated to me. I cant wait to see some of your sewing skills too, good combination sewing and knitting.

Meg says:

The mitts are divine! I am so glad someone has found another use for Grignasco Bambi!

Terri says:

The mitts are GORGEOUS. I wish I was courageous enough to try them myself! And I think the yarn you chose for the Pomatomus socks is just lovely worked up like this. They are going to be lovely. Beautiful work as always Claudine!!

Nora says:

Gorgeous knitting Claudine.

Sandra says:

Such a neat work on mitts! Great!

kathy says:

Beautiful colors and patterns. I’m always awed by your talent with the needles, these two project leave me speechless. I always get inspired seeing what you’re up to. I wish you lived close, I could teach sewing and you could teach knitting with lots of time for tea in between lessons.

I simply love the mitts and your socks make me want to dig through my sock yarn for a project.

melissa says:

both projects look awesome. i just picked up some yarn for the endpaper mitts myself last week.

Donni says:

EXCELLENT Endpapers!

Katie says:

These are two projects that I’m just dying to make for myself – every single version I’ve seen of them is wonderful. Must find the time (and yarn) to make these!

WOW!!! Those are the best endpaper mitt combinations that I have ever seen. They are gorgeous!!! Congratulations on making such a stunning pair.

I am new to your blog but will be a regular visitor.

Just beautiful…
