Another new-to-me technique made its appearance in this week’s mystery KAL clue. I have never done ruching before.  (I hate to admit I didn’t even know how to spell it until I looked it up. )

In addition to starting the second mitt, this week we made an icord for each mitt’s ruching. I found this pretty, contrasting sport weight in my stash:

Downton Mystery KAL

I haven’t cinched down the ruching yet – I’ll wait to block the mitts and try them on first.

Congratulations to designer Kristin Ashbaugh-Helmreich for an astronomic number of projects out there – what a brilliant and well-loved idea this KAL has been!

I always wonder how many projects are out there besides Ravelry.
