Manly Manly Mitts
and our intelligence aglow.
I got to wear mittens from the lovely pile o' mittens (the purple Manos ones, if you must know, to match my fleece) this weekend. Santa Fe was lovely, and mountain cold at night, down into the teens. It was glorious and bracing.
To celebrate, and because I have the usual billion things to do after returning from a trip, today I present a new and exciting pair of mittens. One for the Christmas basket.
Pattern: from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade 220 in brown and natural (what else?)
Notes: Great pattern, no changes.
Best Thing About This Project: Not to brag, but the colorwork on these is so even that you can't even tell there are two yarns being used. I think it's the pattern and the short repeats :)
These were a great project, and relatively fast, even for large and manly hands. After all the Selbuvotter (yes, photos coming soon), I'd forgotten how speedy a repetitive pattern in worsted weight can be! Now I'm really inspired to try out those Herringbone mittens everyone was making last year . . .
