One down and one to go....
With this crazy weather and the fact that I lost a pair of mittens recently I needed a new pair. This was an interesting pattern called, "Manly Mitts" another Knitty.com creation from Summer 05. The cuffs I changed a bit and did a K1tbl, P1 instead of the K2, P2. I really like how the knit stitches stand out when you Ktbl. Obviously black is hard to photograph and you can't see the cuffs very well. I knit the smaller size, it offered two sizes thinking a small mans mitt might be just fine but it's snug. I hope it stretches a bit if I block them.
A friend recently made a funny comment. "Can you imagine the winter we would be having if it weren't for global warming?" Here in Southwest VA we have had more snow this winter than in the past 20 years I think and even snow in December which is really rare. Anyway these mittens prompted using my favorite mug to photograph them!
