Cold, cold fingers. Cold, cold prairie. Cold, cold wind.
Why are there no warm, warm mittens in my collection?
Colourwork mittens with a liner. Oh, my hands are so cosy! And I’m so excited by how well my knitting skills have come along that I was able to do these without much drama. There is a mistake or two in one section of the first mitten that I meant to redress with duplicate stitch, but I was so excited to knit the liners in that I forgot to do it first.
These were one of two Ravellenic Games projects – knit within the time constraints of the Winter Olympics.
Pattern: Nor’Easter Mittens
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Sport in Bare and Baltic Heather, Fleece Artist leftovers in an unknown berry colour for liner

These are absolutely gorgeous!!!
Lovely! Good work. I don’t usually fret over small mistakes otherwise I would hate knitting 😉
Gorgeous. And I know what you mean about a minimal amount of drama while trying a new knitterly thing. I just discovered stretchy cast on and was so pleased with how quickly I mastered it. It saved a hat I was knitting from an alpaca/wool blend which made a lousy ribbing without the special cast on. I had to reknit the hat but the pain was worth it in the end.
Gorgeous! I actually have a lot of Rowan yarn left from some mittens I made for my daughter. It would be perfect to work these up! Great work!
