Yarn Along

Today I'm participating Yarn Along in where you share a picture of what you are reading and what you are knitting.

I was enjoying the pattern for these Fletcher Mittens until I got to the thumb....I am completely lost and have tried to figure it out but have ended up unraveling the thumb twice so far.  If anyone has knit this pattern and can help me figure it out....I would really appreciate it.

As for the book we are planning a trip to France in September so this book was recommended to me, it has a lot of history but is quite interesting so far.


  1. sorry to read you are stuck at the thumb, but they look good so far. such a great yarn. :)

  2. Love the mittens..please share when finished...wish I could help you with the thumb I have found that is the hardest part...

    The colors are so festive!

  3. it looks like a lovely pattern denise, maybe a little walk away from it will help to see more clearly and you'll come back to finish.

  4. i just saw there are many who have made it on ravelry, maybe there will be help from others who have purchased this pattern. good luck!

  5. The pattern looks lovely - sorry I'm no help on sorting it out.

    A trip to France!! Ooooo, that will be lovely! Hubby and I have been planning a return trip since our honeymoon 10 years ago. :)

  6. That's a fun looking pattern, shame you are having trouble with the thumb.
    If you are in my part of France pop in and say 'Bonjour'.
