A Knitting Happy Dance


I now have two "elmo" mittens as Barbara dubbed the in the comments! Here are my first ever completed mittens. I finished the last one last night while watching the Olympics so it took me a week to knit the pair. This was a really basic pattern and they fit perfectly. I will most likely use these with my work coat as the mohair is not likely to stand up to dog walking. They are wonderfully warm!

Tonight I will take a break from class reading and start a new project - a Christmas ornament. I have also been working on C@HRH and will post a progress photo tomorrow. Thanks for all of your kind comments on my CHS Gilded Cage. I'm going to gingerly work on ironing out the creases so it's ready to finish once I decide on my choice.

I can't believe those are your first mittens! They look like you've been knitting mittens forever. Love the color!
