Holy cow, I am totally getting hooked on knitting with MadTosh Chunky. The projects literally fly off the needles! I cast on for these on Monday, and finished these this morning. But they would have been done much, much faster if I had uninterrupted knitting time. Add this pattern to my list of last-minute super speedy gift options! I just love the look of reverse stockinette and garter stitch in this yarn. Interestingly, this is the same colorway as the lowbrow hat I just finished earlier this week. While these pictures aren't a 100% color accurate (we've got dark, gray rainy skies here today--we lucked out and dodged the big ice storm that was supposed to hit us), this skein is definitely a darker purple when compared to the brighter pink tones of the hat. But they complement each other enough that they still work as a "set." One more birthday gift done! But the best part? These mitts only took half a skein! So I can whip up another pair for me, or a pair to have on hand as a future gift option... but for boredom's sake, I'm planning to move on to my last two skeins of MadTosh Chunky next: a bright, sunny orange (Citrus) that are destined for hat and mittens for me!
