FO Friday: knitting for others.

It is time for the annual warm clothing drive in our county. Actually, since the drive is sponsored by the state department of tourism, it is probably state-wide. Wisconsin can get cold, yo.

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn DK Merino Superwash, color 1131
Needles: US#6
Pattern: Windschief by Stephen West. Pattern is written for worsted; I used DK to make a smaller, child’s version. I made worsted weight set for the clothing drive, too, but apparently forgot to take a photo.

I made mittens to go with the the hat and scarf because I still had enough yarn for them, but What pattern? Sheesh, I don’ need no steenkin’ pattern! caught up with me. Can you see how the mitten on the right is about an inch longer than the other? I cannot find my copy of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd, so I had to wing it on the mittens. (Is it significant that the book in not in my Ravelry library? Have I been the victim of hacking, both analog and digital?)
