27 and sunny

You would think with the weather this cold down here, I'd be more inclined to whole mitts and not fingerless ones!

Oh, well, I have my hat to keep me warm, I guess. Besides, I couldn't resist knitting these wonderful baby fan fingerless mitts [Ravelry link] just one more time and I'm not even sure yet if this will be the last pair. They are that much fun to knit.

For this pair I used KnitPicks Gloss fingering weight yarn in color Porcini leftover from the Miralda shawl. Since it is 70% wool and 30% silk, they are light but still quite warm. Just looking at them makes me want to start another pair!

The Felted Bucket Hat has been worn two days already. If you need a quick hat and don't mind an extra run of the washing machine, this is the project for you.

Oh, and I almost forgot to post a picture of the first pair of mitts after they were off the needles - they were mailed off to a friend.

Ooo, I like those mitts so much I just printed out the pattern and now have to go through 9 bins of yarn to find some really pretty yarn for them. I'm thinking PINK! Thanks!
