First a big thank you for all your hugs and best wishes. The surgeon said everything was going well and that I didn't need to see him for a fortnight but needless to say, I'm still worrying. And that is despite the relaxing session of distant reiki from Donna who I'd found some time ago through her knitting blog.
I started my second pair of these mitts soon after Christmas and have worked on them when I could.
And, yes I have made a pair!
The colour is somewhere between the second (indoor) photo and the first two (outdoor) photos. I used YarnAddict yarns - I can't remember the names of the colours, in fact they probably were from the Sock club.
These are based on the gloves in Sandi Rosner's book "Not just Socks and are knitted in Lana Grossa Meilenweit Fantasy shade 4830. I used magic loop with 2mm Addi turbos
They were fun and very easy and I will knit them again but next time I'll use a softer yarn.
