Thanks to my classmate’s birthday present to me of a gift voucher for the Singer Sewing Centre on Foxes Bow, Limerick, I was able to treat myself to two balls of Sirdar Escape Chunky in a lovely blue colourway. It’s a semi solid colour with long colour changes.
I used the tried and trusty free Sirdar sock pattern from Knitting’s February 2010 Issue.

This is a lovely yarn to work with and gets my thumbs up. It’s not inclined to be splity and as with all chunky yarns knits up with satisfying progress.
This is where the Merino Mitts are progress wise.
Progress thus far on Merino Mitts
One done and one still on the needles. I got a bit brassed off with them and needed something fresh to work on.
They shall be finished however.
