  • Mittens!

    You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
    -Indira Gandhi

    In spite of frogging the Baltic Mittens the other day, I do have a finished pair to show. Just in time for that San Diego chill. Or something. They do match my hat, though.
    Glorious Stripey Mittens
    Pattern: Basic Mittens from the Green Mountain Spinnery book
    Yarn: Mountain Mohair, Green Mountain Spinnery, remnants from their remnant bin
    Needles: US4 dpns
    Notes: I adore the stripey-ness.
    Best Thing About This Project: Wool keeps. Someday I'll get to wear them. Because they are all mine.

    They're great! You'll use them one day. Hey, even down here in my warm climate, there's a day or two a year that a pair of wool mittens would welcome.

    It's been a long time since I lived in San Diego. Does it really get cold enough there to wear mittens? They are lovely. About time you made something for yourself.

    They look great! I have yet to make mittens...many fingerless gloves but no mittens yet! We actually used to get weird looks from people when i worked at the airport in hawaii. All of us who worked there would enter the office in thick sweaters carrying blankets, etc while those visiting wore shorts...the a/c at work would freeze us! You'll find a use for them...or when you pcs !

    Ohhhh!! I'm traveling in MN right now (from Temecula). Mittens would be great...especially these super cute ones. Love the colors. And you're right...the stripes are great.

    Those are so cute and cheerful! They are also my school colors, so I may be a little biased. ;)
