They are made using the Danish stitch. I chose it because it is very fine - not at all bulky. Best of all, they fit my hands better than any commercial pair I own. I am definitely going to make another pair - using a silk and merino blend I spun.
I am also making a pair of mittens - with bulky commercial yarn, because I fell in love with the color:
These are made using the Alsike stitch. I like that this stitch looks different on the two sides. I have turned the finished mitten "inside-out." On that side the ribs are more pronounced, and the space between the ribs looks almost woven. It is not a difficult stitch to do, and I love the texture of it.
I've also been working on a few knitting projects, but I'll leave that for another post.
