In the face of great difficulty – other people making demands on my time, that is – I finally finished Eldest Niece’s Really Quick Mitts. It turned out that for me they weren’t really that quick, but that was my fault not the pattern’s; you might recall I ran out of yarn.

I’m disappointed with the results – they’re decidedly not up to my usual high standard, I say with a grin – but they’ll keep Eldest Niece’s hands warm. Given the chilly mornings of late, I think that’s far more important than whether or not I did a fantastic job of the knitting.

Thick and bound to be warm

I used Lincraft’s Premium Luxe Yarn, a 100% wool that knitted up nicely on the 7 mm needles. Do they look like the picture? Sort of; near enough that you’d know they’re mittens. Would I make them again? Probably not.

    I always think that being warm makes anything look great!

      Yep, I think you’re right. And besides, once they’re on, who’s going to notice what they look like?

    Mittens are supposed to be functional, and these look comfy and cozy! Love the color by the way.
