After many attempts at mittens and after having difficulty with understanding patterns, this one is my favorite. The pattern is Lion Brand Frosty Mittens, pattern number L20305. It calls for Homespun yarn, which can taking some getting used to, but once I did, it went pretty smoothly.
This is just one of many projects I am trying to finish for Christmas gifts that need to be sent to the east coast. Yikes, I'm madly trying to make time to get these projects done, but it's been a challenge.
This is lovely silk yarn that came in a Darn Good Yarn monthly box. It's so lovely. I don't think I'm going to get the length I need though. I thought of joining a nice light pink and making it a long cowl that could be wrapped once around. I haven't found anything in my stash yet. I'm also considering a soft white.
