New Mittens! Hooray!
Pattern: End of May Mittens (rav link!)
Yarn: Cascade 220 & a tad bit of KP Palette for cuff
Needles: Size 3 dpn
Thoughts: LOVE!! Such a great pattern. Have had so many compliments from people. And hints that they may also like a pair of these amazing looking mittens. They are very warm and I love the brightness of the green. Or I just love green. :D I would absolutely make this pattern again.
Speaking of green, I've cast on for another Ishbel. In green. I'm really pushing to get it done for the end of the month so I can use it for Feb in my 10 Shawls in 2010 group but it's not looking promising. The loooong purl rows just slow me down way too much. There's got to be a faster way to purl! Well anyhoo, I'm loving the way it's coming out and can't wait to finish it and wear it everywhere.
Here's a photo of Duncan to finish this post. He's kind of cute, even though he woke me up at 5:45 this morning to eat.
