UFO No More

I started these more than a year ago but stalled after I finished the first mitten minus the thumb. I kept them readily available to remind me to finish them. I am glad that I finally finished them, although our coldest mitten-wearing weather is over for this year (I hope).

I am not crazy about color knitting — give me lace knitting any day — but I decided to challenge myself with these.
  • Pattern: Annemor #13 from Selbuvotter by Terri Shea
  • Yarn: Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift, 2 skeins black, one skein of a color called Fog
  • Needles: Knit the ribbing with 2.25mm needles and the remainder with 2.75mm
Key to success with the patterns in this book is to enlarge the charts so you can see what you are doing and to keep marking off where you stop and start.

These mittens were not the oldest UFO (unfinished object, for you non-knitters) in my knitting bag. And that's all I am going to say about UFOs.

I love these although they probably wouldn't be much help in Arizona!

Well, at least when you need them next year, they won't be sitting with the UFOs ...

I hope they are as cozy as they look!

Very nice color work! Mittens have to be the most cumbersome project for detail work (except for gloves, of course).
