It's true! The Strawberry Mittens are finished and ready to go!Instructions are included, as usual, to make a par of fingerless Strawberry Mittens as well. Get them here on Ravelry or here in my Etsy shop.I can hardly believe how fast these mittens happened. The idea for mittens with strawberries on popped into my head late in the afternoon this past Sunday (that would be the day before yesterday.) Yesterday I cast on, and turned out over more than half a mitten. And now today -- the mitten got fingertips and a stripey thumb, and I re-did the charts and wrote up the pattern -- and here we are! Which is just as well, really, since the Main Colour yarn (Knit Picks Palette in Blossom Heather) kept reminding me of strawberry ice cream, which just made me hungry. As I was making them I also fancied that I could actually smell strawberries, too. I think this was all brought on by some kind of strange play between the pink and the red (Palette in Pimento) yarns -- the colour combination came out looking really luscious.
Would you believe that this is my 45th pattern for SpillyJane Knits? I hardly can!
Now to get to work on pattern No. 46...and to get to knitting my sock-contribution for Three Irish Girls' Sock Yarnista club (I'm Miss March 2010.)
