Photo Shoot

I love mittens
I HATE the cold
Those two statements merged this winter. I have now knitted three pairs of mittens
Husband thinks I'm crazy, until my cold hands meet his bare skin and then he remembers why I need them
Last week, I finished the most divine pair of mittens as a test for Katja from Woolly World Knits
I splurged out and bought some beautiful Touch Yarn
My LYS had some, so I chose a skein of Merino Random 4ply
The mittens have turned out sooooo well that when my workmate asked me to take photos of her latest Finished Object, I HAD to get her to take pics of my mittens
Of course there are only so many angles one can get photos of mittens.... but I'm happy with the results
Of course there were a few photos that didn't make the Ravelry cut...
Then there was one were I got a bit over enthusiastic and got stuck in the rose bush
Thorns are NOT cool
This photo ended up being my favourite

Naturally I'm now making wrist warmers - for when I need to use my fingers :-)
Make sure you check out the photos of Leisl's lovely cardi too


  1. They turned out beautiful! This yarn is really lovely! And I agree, the last shot is definitely the winner shot!
