Mittens

Here's my first pair of mittens. I used a free pattern from Knit Simple, Easy Striped Mittens, that was mailed to me when I first subscribed. I pulled the green and gray yarn from the stash and went to town on these. They knit up pretty easily, though I had to do some reinforcements around the thumb. Since I can't remember the fiber of this yarn they will only be fall mittens - no snow for these ones lest they shrink right up :)



There is also a cardigan in the most recent issue that is calling my name...yikes, the list of projects is just growing and growing.

Adorable mittens. They're fun aren't they? I went through a stage a few winters ago where I couldn't stop knitting them. Everyone got a pair for the holidays!
