A few months ago I was destashing some yarn on Instagram and my best friend Caitlin spied this ball of Mochi Plus. She said, "If I could knit or crochet or anything, I'd totally buy that yarn from you," to which I replied, "Well, if you love it so much, I'll make you something with it!" Several times over the course of our friendship we've done little craft swaps-I'll knit her something, and she'll make me jewelry. So now Caitlin has an amazing new pair of rainbow mitts and I've got a new necklace headed my way.
I knit these during my lunch breaks over the course of a week, and I'm so happy to have them done and gifted. Every time I saw that yarn on my bookshelf I felt like a terrible friend for not having knit it up yet, but in the end it worked out perfectly, and Caitlin is so much more thrilled with these mitts than I would have been if I'd kept the yarn for myself.

Love! I bet she smiles every time she wears them. I have some mini Mochi that needs to be knit up one day.ReplyDelete
Oh lovely! That yarn is so fun, and looks so good with the texture in your pattern. :) Lucky friend!ReplyDelete
Such a cheerful project, love how the yarn and pattern work together :)ReplyDelete
I adore the name of the mitts! I love that they are not matchy matchy although I tend to be like that. they are beautiful and I love the rainbow colors :)ReplyDelete
