I'm sure these mittens won't get lost in a snowbank!
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Bittersweet and Scheepjes in black.
Needles: 2.25mm Clover bamboo. I like to use bamboo for stranded knitting on small items like this. I feel like I get more traction.
Pattern: from Knitting Marvelous Mittens by Charlene Schurch
It was pretty hot here, so for our photo shoot we took the mittens to the coldest place we could: my freezer. Jim gets a medal for going along with me on this one.
While I love these mittens I was in a hurry to get them done. My mind is mulling over a cabled mitten pattern featuring the wool/hemp blend I bought while on vacation even while I'm working on the pattern for the fish mittens. It's a testimony to how much I loved them that I took a break to finish them up. These will go into the pile I'm accumulating for Christmas.
It's back to work for me today, so I expect my production levels will drop off.
