Smitten

The Fall 2008 issue of Vogue Knitting proclaims "smitten with mittens" boldly across its cover and smitten I am! I must make and have the mittens on the cover... (Uhm - sorry about my crappy job of swiping the cover from the VK site. At least I got the mittens?!)




And as kind of a variation on a theme, I made these fingerless mitts back in April. I know that I wore them in Toronto at the beginning of May which is the only way of me placing them in time... You can find the pattern here and I must give credit to Alison since it was her Christmas knitting that made me long for a pair of my own.

Not much need for mittens here, but I know folks that need them, so I might have to break down if you like the patterns too once you get it....

I do enjoy making mittens...just not much need here. I gifted all the fingerless mitts I made last year, so I'll have to make myself a pair soon.
