Mitten Weather Ahead

The snow was melting in my yard yesterday, but I was able to finish the mittens in time to get a photo.

I knit Classic Mittens, using size 6 needles and Lion Wool Prints (Ocean Blues) found two years ago in the clearance bin at Hobby Lobby. I like the fit of the mitten even though I unintentionally made one thumb a little longer. I used 3 ounces of yarn (worsted weight) and have 2 ounces remaining. I will probably use the scraps to make a pair of children's socks or mittens for the afghans for Afghans campaign.

No doubt Punxsutawney Phil or Lander Lil will see their shadows next week, so these mittens will get some wear in the six weeks of winter ahead and will undoubtedly see a lot more snow than they did yesterday.

  1. Love the color! I'd like to think we are through with winter down here, but often some of our coldest weather occurs in February.

  2. Great mittens! We still have snow in the yard. I'd love for this winter to be over sooner rather than later, it's been a snowy one. But winter rarely consults me.
