I've been a fan of Andrea Mowry's (Drea Renee Knits) designs for a good while now, and when she released her North Country Mitts earlier this month, I knew they would be a perfect instant gratification project! I needed a "mindless" knitting break from the small gauge kid's sweater I was working on. After finishing these, I can tell you they are one of my favorite handknits to date; I never want to take them off!
These are quick, easy, and make for a perfect de-stashing project. This would also be a great project for someone learning to knit in the round, or even a great last-minute gift! I used the pattern recommended needle size and the magic loop method and these little guys flew right off the needles.
