Violet Curling Set

June 5, 2011

I finished my second Curling set this week, this time in violet for a shop sample. It’s quite rare for me to like a pattern enough to knit it more than once since there are so many beautiful patterns out there. I usually knit something multiple times only if it’s for a class I’m teaching or it’s particularly lovely. I this case, it’s both.

I originally planned on tucking the set away for a gift after it did its time at the shop, but I made the mitts so small that they could only go to a recipient with hands as small as mine!

Pattern: Curling by Anne Hanson of KnitSpot
Yarn: .66 skein Malabrigo Sock #808 Violeta Africana
Needles: 16″ US 3 Addi Turbos for cowl, US 0 Hiya Hiya dpns for mitts
Made for: shop sample
Timeline: 8 May – 3 June 2011
Modifications: None
Worst Part: The mitts would be more comfortable if I had used a stretchier bind off
Best Part: I think this colorway works better for the pattern than the one I used for the first set.
