Shipyard mitten pattern is now in the madder shop!

Mittens were knitted in Quince & Co. Owl / Elf—isn't that alpaca halo pretty? 

Ooh, it was a bitterly cold day when I photographed these mittens! The model (Dana) and I rushed outside to take these quick shots. Unfortunately, myfrozen  brain forgot to photograph the mittens un-bunched, to show their length and fitted shape.

I kept meaning to photograph them again, as still lives, but continued to put that off while continuing to wear them. A big no-no. I soiled them with soot while making a fire in my barn-studio. So now these light gray mitts are speckled with spots of black. Guess I'll just have to knit a pair in a dark shade—perhaps Huckleberry? Barred?

Here's a shot below where you can kind of see the soot on the ribbing of the palm. Boo. They are still warm, though!!

LOVE owl, it looks so soft and pretty, and i love that these lovely gloves have already given comfort and been so useful (i even think the soot looks good).

and i LOVE that you have a fire in your studio. so cozy!
