Phew! I'm glad I got this up before the world ended! That would have been a tragedy, eh? ;)

Catherine's Mitts

Pattern: Annepaalandet's Mitts by Annepaalandet
Yarn: Berroco Vintage in Breezeway
Needles: US 7/8 (it's more of a 7.5, but I use them as a 7 or an 8)

These are a quick, stash-busting Christmas gift for John's sister, who apparently really loved the hat I made her. I think she will actually use these, though. I was tempted to keep them because they are so versatile and warm! I had just enough yarn left for 70 Yard Mitts, though (which I'm wearing now in my family's super cold home to keep blood in my fingers!).

I first saw the pattern in Eliza's "Quick Knits" round-up (she's brilliant, so check the whole series out!). I've been on a mitt thing recently. I'll probably make at least two more pair while I'm home. They are so fast and satisfying! I altered the pattern a little, but I think it was only after the thumb stitches were separated. I only knit a few rounds before starting the ribbing and only 5 rows of the thumb since I didn't like how long they look in the photos.

It's a really simple pattern (even in Google-translationese!) and really great to wear. Perfect for the photographer who doesn't let winter keep her indoors. I wish I had kept them long enough to wear on an upcoming adventure here! But Catherine can keep them and enjoy them. :) It's not like I don't have time to whip up my own!

For more FO Friday posts, go to Tami's Amis! I may post Monday, but if I don't, I wish you all a Merry Christmas (or a restful few days off if you don't observe!)!
