Hey now, it's springtime. I should get some mittens on.
I don't know what inspired me to make such wintry-themed mitts so late in the season- maybe it was east-coast empathy!, but, eh. There's always the sunny optimism of next year's winter, and I will always have friends with cold hands.
The yarn is KnitPicks Palate, a fingering-weight rather affordable wool yarn that comes in many, many colors. The pattern was also from KP, although, I can't recommend it highly. The adult sizes run so small that I had to go up three needles sizes from the recommended gauge just to be able to get a good-sized mitt happening. Still, they are pretty and worth the effort.
I love the wintry colors. Those are words no one has ever said in March ever.
