Persnickety Mitten

Persnickety

Persnickety Mitten with yarn balls. Pattern by SpillyJane Knits. Knit by: Anne Grove.

Yet a mitten from SpillyJane Knits. This is one is really cute. Cute and simple. I am not sure what drew me to it: the pattern or the name. I have no idea what is means – is it a place perhaps? It’s just so darn fun to say (not that I know if I pronounce it correctly).

The palm is not my friend. At least not before blocking it. I don’t know quite yet. Perhaps I’ve just been occupied and tired this week. Lots is going on and thoughts are wondering off every time I sit down to knit.

Anywho, this is going to be a short post as I am currently out feeding 30 geeks. I probably won’t find the time sunday to post the finished mittens as I won’t be home before very late. But don’t despair – I have a small post ready for the sunday read šŸ˜‰

I have done two pairs of mittens from SpillyJane before on this project. Or one as a warm up and one as the first pair of mittens. The gnome mittens and the flamingo mittens.

SpillyJane patterns contains instructions as well as a chart. It costsĀ $ 6.00 USD but if you purchase several at a time she gives a nice discount. You can find the pattern hereĀ on RavelryĀ or on herĀ etsy shop.

  1. persnickety means something that is difficult with small and demanding parts, and is not correct unless you do the parts right! It can be 2 colors of pale pink and if you use the wrong one you won’t know until you have finished the second mitten, or it could be a very complicated recipe from your grandma, or it can be your grandma herself!
