FO- My Knitting Olympics Project
I actually finished these before the olympics were over, but just now got around to posting them. Here is where I started them, in the Knitalong here on KH.
The pattern is Andrea's Mitts from Knitpicks, and they were really fun to make. I used a couple of new techniques, such as a crocheted provisional cast on and picot bind off. They're a little big on me because they're for a friend who's taller and has longer hands than me. I hope she likes them!
Yay!

Hey Nicole, I'm taller than you, and I'd love them, sure she will also.

You've inspired me to try a pair for next Fall.
