EZ knitting for the very first time...

I learned how to knit in 1985, and only first heard of Elizabeth Zimmerman in 2005. Two of her books have been sitting on my bookshelf untouched and unread until last week, when Twitter was a tweetin' about an EZ KAL and this group blog.

My first EZ project is the Norwegian Mittens from Knitter's Almanac:

From my yarn stash: Sublime Angora Merino
Needle size: 4.0mm

After many false starts, the first cuff is well underway but the fluffiness of this yarn is driving me insane as the fluffy bits infiltrate my nose and must not wear black when knitting.


  1. It's looking great so far, I love the yarn (fluffiness aside)

  2. Great photo! I think I'll have to make a pair of these for myself. I intend to make a pair of gloves / mittens for myself this winter.
