New Mittens

After the weekend’s glove failure, I’m happy to show you my new mittens. They’ve been finished for a week now but I was waiting for the sun to come out to take photos. No sign of the sun and I can’t wait any longer! I wore them yesterday on a walk and had toasty hands the whole time. Looking down at these pretty mittens made me smile in spite of the grey weather.

I’ve already talked about the yarn and pattern before, and you can see more info on Ravelry, so I won’t make a long post out of this. Just a couple more photos….

Coming up next week…. Experimental Spinning 2a. I’ve been busy blending colors on my drum carder, spinning samples and now I’m ready to knit swatches. Pretty interesting results IMHO.

I’ve also picked up my cabled cardigan again. I’m working on the body. It’s slow going with so many stitches and cables, but I’m definitely enjoying it.

In less than 2 weeks starts the Winter Olympics and Ravellenic Games! More about that next week. I’m going to be doing a lot of spinning and posting about my progress EVERY SINGLE DAY. Get ready!
