  • More Mitten Mania

    The most discouraging feature of the mania of book-collecting is,
    that it grows by what it feeds on,
    and becomes the more insatiable the more it is gratified.
    -William Matthews

    For the last day of January, mitten mania continued.

    Bird in Hand is done. I'll wait until they are dry to show new pictures.

    Last week my Selbuvotter book came and I just couldn't resist. Annemor #16 (oh, so romantically named) is just perfect for a friend of mine, who has been begging for mittens for oh, about 5 years now. How can you not love the fun Norwegian thumb?
    And one last cast-on:
    Kalev's Mittens from Folk Knitting in Estonia in KnitPicks Gloss. This yarn is loking fabulous in these mittens.

    The tally for January's mittens is 4.5 completed pairs (waiting for the rest of the yarn for Annemor) and a new start with the last ones.

    A full January wrap-up, as well as plans for February, comeing tomorrow. A Loose Knit Group has declared February for hats. Think I'll be as overcome as I was in January?

    Gorgeous mittens! One thing though, give the mittens to someone who will treat them right. Gloss tends to pill like nobody's business.

    Very romantic name! The mittens look so good! I love the red and gold ones you've started too.

    What? Give up mittens for hats?

    I love the mittens. It's too warm for them already where I live. We just hat temps in the 70s again. Wonder how I ever get any knitting done.
