Smitten with my mittens...

I'm done with the second pair of the commissioned socks! Yeah! I'll deliver them this Thursday evening and that will feel good.



I also want to share with you the fingerless mittens that my friend, Marie, at ZQuilts sent to me. About a month ago. I am terribly remiss for not getting this posted earlier, but I've been trying to get a good photo of them - while they are on my hands. Not an easy task, especially without a tripod. I finally talked DH into taking a shot and although I wish it were better, it does show you just how lovely the mittens are. A gorgeous color and extremely soft. I absolutely love them!


I sent her some hand-dyed fabric as my way of saying "thank you," but I'm sure I got the better of the deal.

Oooo the socks are beautiful!! I love the look of the fingerless mittens but would be useless when we are at 20 below in the winter LOL.

Love the socks! The colors are great! I love the pattern on the cuff. Very nice.

And the mitts are wonderful also. I just love the fingerless ones. So versatile. One day I will attempt cables. :)

Have a great day!

I love those socks! And I love the mittens, too. I have one of those mittens finished - looks like I need to get the other one finished.

Sorry - me again! What is the pattern of those socks, and what yarn did you use? LOVE them.
