FO Friday 4

Surprisingly I have an FO this week! I didn't think that I would finish this this week and so easily!

My FO this week is Toast, a fingerless mitt pattern:

This was my first time using DPNs and I'm pretty pleased with how they came out! The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash Paints in a purply-blue color that I love and it's super soft and squishy! The two mitts don't quite match because I cast on more stitches for the second one (to see if it would make a difference and if I liked the bigger size better) and the thumbholes aren't quite the same height but I don't mind. I think that I might make another pair but without the thumbhole and a bit shorter just so I can use the leftover yarn I have and so I can practice a bit more with DPNs. However, my first experience with DPNs was an enjoyable one and I didn't have too much trouble, it was just a matter of being persistent and knowing that it'll get easier the more I do it. 

That's all for me this week! Check out other FOs at Tami's blog!


  1. Nice job on the DPNs :) I swear they look so much more terrifying than they actually are! Love the colour of your mitts.

  2. You are really doing great. I don't think I could have knit thumbs when I was a relatively new knitter. I'm going to queue the Toast pattern!
