Batten up the hatches, here comes the cold

Hurray for snow days! And what better way to spend a snow day than knitting mittens?



Specs:
Pattern: my own
Needles: US 4
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Irving Park colorway; Classic Elite Lush in color 4413 (black)
Pattern Notes: I may have found two new favorite yarns. They're both SO soft. The black mittens are for a friend at work. I've already given them to her, but I have some separation anxiety. There may be a Lush pair in my future. In the meantime, I'll have to settle for the Lorna's pair. This yarn would make a great sweater, if only I could find a pattern I like for it. Any ideas?

I've also been working on my Anemoi mittens, because one can never have too many pairs of mittens, right? New pics coming soon!

Oh they're stunning, though I can't imagine having to "settle" for Lorna's! It's delicious, and machine washable! How can you go wrong?

I love that colorway - Irving Park is actually a major street here in Chicago about eight blocks north of my house. Always makes me smile.

Hope you're not too snowed in!

Love the mittens!!!. . . I understand your separation anxiety in giving away something you have worked long and hard on but the joy you see on someone's face makes it all worthwhile!!!! Here's the look I have for the goodies you sent me :). . . especially when I found out you made that little stash bag . . .
