Owlmittens came out last night!

They're out! The Owlmittens are out! Yes, these are the mitteny equivalents of my Owlsocks -- remember those?Your copy of the 5-page .pdf is waiting for you right over here on Ravelry! Watch for the pattern to turn up in my Esty shop later this afternoon.The best part? The pattern comes with instructions and charts to make the Owlmittens as fingerless Owlmittens -- these are owls for all seasons!

And now for all that Owly info:

Size: Women’s Medium (or any hand that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 9 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: One ball of Knit Picks’ Palette (231yd / 50g) in each of the following colours: Camel Heather (Main Colour -- MC,) and Autumn Heather (Contrast Colour – CC.) Alternately, any other fingering yarn in these colours or colours of your choice may be used. A 15” piece of waste yarn of the same weight in a contrasting colour to hold the thumb stitches is also required.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 1 (2.25 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Skills Needed: Increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round, stranded knitting, twisted stitches, and chart reading.

That's it! Enjoy the owls...the ROBOTS are next!

Oh Owls, how do I love thee? How well you fit in with the mad dose of startitis I have. I'm sure you would look sweet sitting partially done beside the sock and the hat and the other mitten and the monster. Must go now before I decide that is actually a good idea!
