It works up really nicely and quickly, and I’ve made two pairs now. I’m working on a third for a friend. It’s such a nice little project to do while watching a show — most of the second pair was completed while watching a K-drama called Her Private Life (which, by the way, is a super cute show and highly recommended).
The pattern I used is by Sheep & Stitch, and they have a video walkthrough that was really helpful — especially because this was my first time using double-pointed needles and knitting in the round. It was a little uncomfortable at first, because it took a minute to figure out how to hold the needles. But the mittens worked up so nicely once I got the hang of it.
I’m enjoying the art of crochet and knitting… and as a true millennial bitten by the gig economy bug, I am thinking about selling small crochet / knitted items here on my website!
I am still in the process of figuring out exactly what that’s going to look like, but I’m excited to dip my toes in the small-business world and see if anyone actually wants the things I’ve been making. I mean… I want them. I love this stuff. So maybe someone else will too!
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the things I might sell. (Hint: Bookmark this page and let me know what you think!)
