in which at least my hands are warm

The Moose Mittens are going slowly. It's no fault of their own- I've just been running instead of knitting. I'm trying to get back on track with these- they really are fun, and I want to get them out to Sam before the worst weather comes along.

My Foldover Mitts are finished, though, and just in time. It gets incredibly cold in my little hut at night, and I wanted something I could type/ knit in. I designed these mitts to be warmer on my fingers- where the folded bit begins. Made out of Bearfoot in a deep, claret color, I wear these constantly. I'd wondered how the mohair would hold up over time, but so far it is wearing well.

Apologies for the images- there is just no daylight in my down time lately. By the time I'm out of work it's time to eat and after dinner there is just no sun. I wanted to wait to post this until I had better images, but at this rate that might not be for a few months. I'll keep trying, but in the meantime, hey! Look! I'm finishing knits! Hooray!

Currently on the needles: obviously, the Moose Mittens. Also a set of textured mittens in Sundara and a set of complimentary sock yarn scraps that will either end up a colorwork cowl or… well, I don't know. A doubleknit hat, possibly? I'm hoping for inspiration tomorrow. Also a scarf for Billy, but I have a month to finish that.

    The yarn for the moose mittens is beautiful, I love the sheen.

    Wow, love the mittens, love your blog, and absolutely love the resolutions. Thanks so much for visiting my site and posting a comment. Unfortunately with my current lifestyle, I’m on the computer way too infrequently. But change is always possible…
