NOT a Twilight Post
For the record, I do not endorse the vision of masochistic love promulgated by the Twilight franchise, however these mittens are totes cute!
Pattern: Bella's Mittens by Marielle Henault
Yarn: Ella Rae Kamelsoft in maroon, two skeins exactly.
Needles: size 8
This is a fun, fast project that results in a pair of giant gauntlet-esque mittens. If you weren't working on say 12 projects at once you could most definitely finish these in a day or two. In my recent sweater knitting extravaganza I seem to have forgotten the secret to a balanced knitting life: equilibrium can only be maintained when there are a proportionate number of small accessories vs. large projects on the needles--these smaller projects seem to provide the light at the end of the tunnel when you need it most.
Next up for me: my Vestvember project and a family funtimes photo shoot! Stay tuned...
