Isn’t funny how things repeat themselves?

If you’ll remember, last year, around this time, I was cold… and I only had one sock. Now it was a nice, warm, sock, but it was only one sock, nonetheless.

This weekend, the temperatures are supposed to drop into the single digits. And while I have a kicking, fantastic bag… I don’t have any mittens. I’m on probation in the “real knitters” club…. knitters are not allowed to have cold hands…

So, I’m working on some mittens. They’re pretty!
gorgeous fair isle pattern

Isn’t it nice? No mom, you may not have them.

The pattern is the Bird in Hand Mittens from Kate Gilbert.

I’ve finished one mitten… now I need to hurry the H up and finish the other one! I’m feeling inspired by the array of mittens at Saartje Knits. I want a spread of mittens! Last night I stayed up a bit late perusing ravelry and queuing and favoriting a bunch of mitten patterns.

Here’s another photo…

    Bingo. I know that feeling! And I’m glad I’m not the only one who say that photo at Saartje’s and immediately went, “….Oooh.”

    You’re doing a beautiful job! I’m off to look at the mittens you queued.

    All the mittens all around blogland have been so inspiring lately!

    Ha, I also feel like I’m on probation until I make some mittens! I have Endpaper Mitts next on my list, then Anemoi mittens… unless I’m convinced to do Bird in Hand instead…

    What yarn are you using?

    Oh, I love those mittens! So, so addictive. Hurry, before the single digits come.

    Can’t wait to see them! Think you’ll have them done by Friday, 11:30 AM?

    I want a delicious spread of mittens too! I’m writing up a mitten pattern right now, and I just picked up the latest Piecework at B&N, the one that describes the super-secret and mysterious (up until now) Rovaniemi knitting technique.

    Me too. I have yet to make myself mittens, or anything immediately useful, for that matter. You’re almost done with your mittens! I’m sure you’ll love having warm hands when it’s so cold outside.
