NaKniMitMo, pt. 5: first one done

The first Bavarois mitten is history!This means it's time to start the second one, a prospect that is not seeming all that bad. Usually I run from second mittens, having (most likely) burnt myself out on the first one, but these ones are different. The nice stretch of plain Stockinette on the palms takes the edge off all that twisting.

Here it is flat:I was going to go with a gusset thumb but I bailed at the last minute. Going with a peasant thumb is another one of the small mercies that these mittens have to offer. They're not so bad!

If you're eyeing these hungrily, I am happy to report that I'm in the process of writing up the pattern. I mean, if anyone wants it.

I would LOVE the pattern. I have some Jamieson's yarn that would look great in this!

Nice mitten, lady! Also, loving that new user pic. Does this mean you got that straightener you'd been hankering for?

Very snazzy mitten!
I understand the second mitt thing - I have almost as many single mittens as I do single socks...
