Does Anyone Know What I Am Talking About?
When I was a little girl ( I'm 82 now) my grandmother used to make mitts for the men in her family who were farmers. They were very warm. The cuffs were made with just one strand of yarn but the rest of the mitt was made with two. It looked like salt and papper. She knit the European way, holding the yarn in her left hand and used 4 needles , or 5. I was too young to know anything about knitting, but it seems to me that I remember her doing one row with one color and the next row was one stitch of the one color and the next stitch of the other color. Is that possible? Does anyone have any ideas at all?
I'm knitting things for the homeless and for kdis who don't have any mitts for another charitable orginazation. I enjoy this very much
Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
