Just for Me

It's all about me and I don't have enough yardage yet. I do have warm hands, however. I had worn out the mittens that went with my winter jacket, and bought yarn last spring. Finally, I made time for me. They're finished and I used up about 196 yards of yarn. Worsted weight yarn knits up much faster than sock yarn.

I'll give details here, while I remember.
Pattern: my own, with elements from a number of places
Yarn: Aussi Wool in amethyst and rose bay, with the fuzzy part a combination of Bernat Sox in pink hot and Bernat Boa in doo doo bird.
Needles: US #4/3.5 mm for the cuffs and US#5/3.75 mm for the hands.

Knitting time about i week (Jan. 20 -28, 2011)

I'm working on a cotton crochet bath mat, which will certainly add enough yardage to count for this challenge.
