Hello, winter!


Snow, snow, snow, knitting, snow, and snow, and then Bill models his one completed Manly Mitt. I really like it, and he does, too. I used four aluminum DPNs (3.25mm), and I held the CC (grey) in my left hand and the MC (black) in my right while knitting. Throw and pick, throw and pick, throw and pick. I redid the top decreases until I was happy with the pattern, and I tried to make a nice star at the top of the thumb, too.


And it's still snowing! I love it.

Thanks for the photos, quite sexy (for mitts). They look very warm and well manly... perhaps with pastel colours it would take on feminine appeal.

They are so cool! I am with you on the snow - it just started coming down here and I couldn't be happier about it!

The manly mitts are devine! I just got an email from a friend in Montreal with lots of snowy pictures. I am quite envious.

That looks extra warm and snuggly. Do you have a basic pattern that you use and modify to your heart's content?
