Mittens!Last night, at Knit Happens, I finally finished my mittens, and when I got home, I even blocked them!
Who knew that a rolling pin and a glass would be the perfect mitten-blocking tools? The rolling pin fit perfectly in the thumbs, and the glass helped with the mitten-bodies. I must admit that it took me a few minutes of rummaging around the house for some sort of suitable tool before I hit upon the rolling pin. :)
But here they are:
Overall, I loved making these, and I sense several pairs of these will end up as Christmas gifts for next year. I basically used one of the patterns from Latvian Mittens, but changed the cuff pattern. My only complaint is that the mittens are a little tight right around the thumb, but I still love them. :)
And I cast on for my next project - the cashmere silk lace scarf!
