Owl Mitts

PhotobucketThe second kit I was asked to review by Morehouse Farm was this adorable pair of Owl Mitts.

The Knitter: R.S.

How was the yarn quality?
The quality of the yarn was good. I was concerned at first that it was too coarse, but it was actually quite soft to work with. It was easy to knit with and I had no problems with splitting or breakage.

Was the pattern written clearly, easy to follow, and accurate? Were there any mistakes in pattern?
The pattern was clearly written and easy to follow. No mistakes were noted.

Was your FO as expected?
I was quite pleased with my finished objects. The mitts are adorable. The pairing of the two yarn colors was excellent. I really like the flecks of blue-green in the variegated yarn, they really add to the finished product.

Had you heard of this yarn company before?
I had never heard of this particular yarn company before.

Would you get any other kits from this yarn company? Or recommend them to anyone?
I would definitely knit kits from the company again, and recommend them to friends based on my experience with this pattern.

Was knitting this project an enjoyable experience?
This was an enjoyable knit, a nice quick project. An easy knit for beginners, this would be a good project for beginner knitters who have never worked in the round before.

Is there anything else you'd like knitters to know about this kit/yarn/pattern?
For knitters who hate sewing, this kit might not be the best choice as you have to sew the eyes and you have to sew down flaps on each mitt. That being said, it really isn't a whole lot of sewing, I just happen to know some knitters who really hate any amount of hand sewing in a project.
