Mitten Mania!

Toasty hands people! I'm all about the toasty hands.

I knocked together these babies recently in a wool/silk blend tweed from Jo Sharp, "Silkroad DK Tweed" in a lovely burgundy red colour called "Emporio". They are based on the "36 Stitch Mittens" by Elizabeth Zimmermann, from the book "Knitting Without Tears". I can confirm, no tears were shed. I modified the pattern slightly to 44 stitches wide, to compensate for my gauge and spatulate hands.

They're lovely.

But seriously, isn't it like tropical or something down there?

Not so. We're having a little belated blast of warm this week, but it's mid Autumn here now. Soon it will be winter!

Anyone know what happened to Planet Fabulon?

The Other Andrew said...

OMG, no! I have no idea. That's a bit strange, there's just one entry saying it was sucked into a blak hole... weird.
