So the second Camp Loopy 2011 project is socks or mittens or gloves with cables, and it has to be knit between July 15 and August 15. I already have a sock on the needles, and I am not really a fan of knitted gloves, so I went for the mittens. This pattern is Bavarian Tulip Mittens from Interweave Knits, Fall 2010. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, knit on size 3 needles. Now knitting a worsted weight yarn on size 3 needles results in a pretty dense fabric, which is actually what I wanted, but this yarn is not very tightly twisted and can be a bit temperamental, especially when I have to make corrections. I knit most of the mitten last weekend and finished up the tip and the thumb this morning. The fit is snug, but not tight. I did make a few slight modifications to the pattern. I mirrored the side cables, and trailed the cable pattern off at the top rather than just cutting it off after 4 repeats of the pattern.
