I'm Kathy from Minnesota. I think this mitten knit-along is going to be lots of fun.
I am right handed and I use both when doing color work and either pick knit or throw.
I like alpaca but haven't used silk. There is a lace shawl in my knitting future and silk is a possibility.
I've tried both circulars and double points and always go back to dbl points.
I've always been a coffee drinker but in the last year tea has become my drink of choice. I prefer English or Irish Black Tea with artificial sweetener and milk.
I don't have any beaded markers. Usually whatever is handy, scraps of yarn work.
I knit socks, socks, socks. I wear them, I give them as gifts. Mittens will be a nice change.
I knit pullovers and I wear cardigans.
I plan to knit these mittens with wool from my stash. Navy and denim blue.
