Occult Scarf Pic and A Mitten Update

I have managed to find an ‘in progress’ picture of the elusive and recently completed black ribbed scarf for your viewing pleasure, hooray!

 

Now for an update on the mittens!

The pattern I’m using (girl gift mitts) says they are a suitable size for 6-10 year olds. Apparently my hands and wrists are smaller than a 6-10 year old’s because I have been stealthily* reducing my needle size every few rows as I progress towards the hand of mitten 1 and keep trying it on and keep finding it too large.**

Isn’t it pretty? I love the way the yarn is striping.

I’m loathe to rip back, as I ripped back the start once already and this yarn (adriafil knitcol) does NOT like being ripped back and reknit. Merino is hoity toity like that.

*Maybe ‘stealthily’ is a little optimistic, but I’ll make the other one match and we’ll tell ourselves it looks like part of the pattern, okay?

**Just to clarify, as far as I can tell so far this is a very good (and free!) pattern and I honestly do have very tiny hands and wrists – I don’t want anyone to think I’m dissing the designer!
