Because as a knitter and violin/viola player, it seemed one day that everything I do involves string.

Here are my new Chunky Malabrigo mitts. We needed a sample of this new yarn for the shop, so I volunteered to do mitts. Now I have to make the pattern notes I took make sense. I based these on a pattern for the regular Malabrigo yarn, but I wanted them to fit a little closer, and I wanted to do decreases instead of increases for the thumb shaping, so I started them at the finger cuff instead of the wrist cuff. They're very easy!
