Ok, the mittens didn’t eat Manhattan. Not even a few buildings. But they have eaten my life the past few days. I’m making them on commission for an Etsy customer – I’m using Adrian Bizilia’s really excellent pattern – find it HERE.
I love how the colors have turned out, and I think the inside of the mitten is just as beautiful as the outside…
This, folks, is why you block. Unblocked mitten right, blocked mitten left.
My super fancy blocking frame? Yep, wire coat hanger. Works great.
I just have to knit the lining – I have some nice alpaca yarn. Back to mittens!
Oh, and remember, our 15% off sale at AWM ends December 3rd at midnight. Visit the site for a list of participating shops. Cheers!
