Fiber Arts Friday: Fiber Celebration, part 14

With my yarn complete, I've been more focused on knitting.

Since the recipient's hands are larger than mine, we had a fitting at the end of December to verify that the thumb/palm separation was comfortable and that my plan forward was still appropriate.

It is.

The palm is now done and I'm beginning the decreases at the top of the mitten.  My plan is to decrease the outside two stitches each round with the thumb-side decreasing only one stitch per round.  This should mirror the thumb increases while following the steeper ramp on the outside of the hand.

I'm loving these mittens, and starting to look forward to making a pair for myself.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
