Knit Mitt

So I seem to be making a lot of fingerless mitts these days. It's quite cold in my office, and I have a fair amount of straggly bits of yarn, and the mitts seem to solve both of those problems: stash-buster & keeping my paws warm while still allowing me to type.

I spun up this bunch of nice silvery-grey blended with all sorts of colors wool, and had enough to make the lovely Wine and Roses Mitts from the Winter 2006 issue of Interweave Knits:

I've only got this one done so far - the other one is on hold for now, as I managed to snap one of the needles (pesky skinny bamboo!!!). I'm only showing this one side, as I screwed up the lace pattern a wee in the center of the other side. Oh well. It adds to their Dickensian charm, I figure.

Makes me want an enormous chair, and a room somewhere, far away from the cold night air.

Or perhaps reverse that.

I would not have guessed that you could get so lovely a pair of Bob Cratchitt gloves from the Interweave pic. Those are absolutely gorgeous.

Super burrito, chile verde, extra cheese, black beans, hot sauce, salsa, guac, and an additional side of guac.
