Hee Hee! Anemoi Mittens!

Can I tell you how much I am loving these Mittens? I. Love. Them.

They are so much fun to knit. This is the first time I have ever tried stranded knitting. It is great. I am pleased to say that I didn't have any trouble with it. I am holding both yarns and alternating fingers like some old pro. Not meaning to brag, just blown away. It is a great discovery.

I am really enjoying the chart too. It is so like my old X-Stitching days - but much better.






Take a close look at that chart and you will see the most difficult part of this whole project. Yep. I had to colour the whole thing in by hand. For some reason my printer wouldn't print the dots in the squares ?!? so the charts all came out blank. That was a time consuming endeavour let me tell you. It did however give me an overall view of the patterns within the pattern.



Here is a peek inside the glove (Thanks Jason for teaching me that little flower on my camera means Macro - all this time I thought it meant Outdoors!)
Isn't that a cool shot? Look at those woven threads of yarn. I just love it.

We picked up my brother and his dear girlfriend from the airport today and drove them to the Ferry. And wouldn't you know it - the battery died on the camera just as I was about to take the 1st picture. Sadly then, no pics of them. Which is quite sad - the last time they were here was July. Ah well. We have made a pact to visit every 2nd month from now on. Time just goes by too quickly.


I made them some Butter Tarts and Chocolate Pretzels for the Ferry ride. Mmmm. Thanks to mystery blog that I can't find again...for the Pretzel recipe. Next time I am going to melt the chocolate and drizzle it over top - better for presentation. Boy were they delicious! I alternated White, Milk and Peanut Butter chips - so good.

In the meanwhile here is an older picture of them.

Yummy - these mitts are coming along so perfectly - they're already a real piece of art, and I can't wait to see them all finished, in all their glory! And yay for having no problems with stranded knitting!
I so had to laugh about that macro thing on your camera - just like you, I thought for ages that the little flower meant "outdoors" - and I'm *very* relieved to hear that I wasn't the only one ;)))
