A Mitten for the New Year

One down!


It was really hard to get the thumb to look decent. I thought about just making it pink or brown, but I told myself to stop being lazy. 

Taking a nice warm sunbath ... such fuzzy yarn! I didn't notice till it was in the sun. 

So I'm going to cast on the left-handed mitten in a few minutes here, and hopefully knock it out before the mitten version of second-sock-syndrome hits. The pattern isn't tricky, just tedious. I love colorwork, so it's a treat, but I won't show you the reverse side. My reverse sides are always pretty ugly!

I leave you with a picture of Spot and Georgie Girl, lazing in the yard on a nice day. 

The doggy is a cat magnet. Cats love her. 

Happy New Year!!


  1. That mitten is beautiful! One day I am going to get the hang of colorwork. Every time I see a pattern like this, I want to knit it. Beautiful work.


I would love to hear from you!
