The swatch is from a recycled Talbot's sweater in a wool/cotton blend. (For a pretty nifty tutorial on stashing on the cheap by recycling sweaters, check out this site.)
It looks like a bowl at this point, but the top two stripes already have some decreases for the neck area. For some reason my crochet rounds never line up, are they supposed to be this far off?...
Finally, the Amazing mitts are excruciatingly close to being finished. Just a thumb and a half to knit and some ends to weave in!
Here's the rest of the WIP Wednesday posts!
