I designed a pair of mittens AND finished them. Despite having to rip and reknit the first mitten several times. Despite not having the recipient’s hands um… handy to try them on when I ran into a questionable spot. I’m pretty damn happy with how they turned out, hopefully they’ll be well-received.

I am planning to write the pattern up and make it available at some point, but I want to try it in a thinner yarn and see if I can make it work for smaller hands too – these are a men’s large.
Next up: Squirrel Sampler Mittens from Hello Yarn. I’ve got an oatmeal-y color for the background, moss green for the contrast, and chocolate brown alpaca for the lining. These are going to be LOVELY to wear with that alpaca.
