Yesterday Jim and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary! Jim had forgotten that morning, but redeemed himself with reservations at a very nice restaurant that evening. Right now, he and Luke are out getting their hair cut because this Tuesday, Luke graduates from grade eight. Luke is not looking forward to this because he has to dress up and he thinks he'll feel out of place. Poor dear. We're just trying to ease him through it with the least possible angst.

I had a very relaxing morning today. I finished up a mitten.

Pattern: Annemor #4
Yarn: Dale Falk
Needles: 3.25mm

This was quite a quick knit at this gauge! I'm so used to fingering weight yarn on 2.25mm needles. The original was to fit a girl's medium. I was hoping for something bigger, but while this fit's my boy's hands quite well, it is too snug for me to wear. And here's the back.

When I downloaded these pictures from my camera, I found bonus pictures that I hadn't taken. Here's the best of the bunch.

    LOVE that mitten! Beautiful design and GREAT color combo.

    Congrats to you and yours!!!

  2. Happy wedding anniversary #16! I'm glad hubby redeemed wouldn't have wanted #16 to be the last one LOL.

    Love the mittens Laurie. You do such lovely colourwork!

  3. Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I completely agree with your philosophy on birth. Being both informed and relaxed probably works best. Love the mitten and hope that you are well.
    xox, J

  4. Happy anniversary. We've just done 18 years this month ourselves. How time flies sometimes. Your mittens look great. I might just get me the book at the KP sale. :)

  5. Congratulations on being hitched for half as many years as me ;o)

  6. Happy 16! Or is that sweet 16?!

    Congrats to Luke. Hopefully he'll make it through the night in his nice clothes.

  7. Pig in a Pigloo, lol. Cute pig!

    Happy Anniversary and congratulations to Luke! He looked quite distinguished.

    That mitten is fabulous. The blue and white really made it pop.
