...but years of procrastination bring mittens. Finally!
A. and L. have been waiting patiently for their mittens, and they finally have them! I had a specific deadline, and the girls were going skiing in Tahoe, I could not delay any longer.
I wanted them to be bright, and 3-D, and floral. I chose pansies and then I was thinking of other springy flowers, but I finally decided on poppies.
I loved the poppies!
Wouldn't you know it, the girls fought over the pansies!
The mittens are made of Lamb's Pride Superwash worsted, held double on #5 and #7 (US) needles they're dense and very likely waterproof.
I had so much fun knitting these that I was tempted to make another pair for someone else, but my hands were pretty tired from knitting all night so I snapped out of it.
