Finished One Mitten


I finished the first Komi mitten for Mr. SABLE this evening. I'm pretty pleased with it, even if my grafting was a little wonky and tends to distort the ends. I'm hoping that a little swish in water will help it all settle down. Very fun project!


Because we live at the end of a cul-de-sac, all the snow gets piled in front of our house. Our kids love this. Earlier in the season, the plow guys were using a different theory of plowing and distributed the snow much more evenly around the circle. The boys were not pleased. Earlier today, when the sun was bright and the air not too cold, I sent Mr. SABLE and The Little Emperor out to play in the snow for a while. The LE was in dire need of enforced recess. Mr. SABLE took about 10 pics of him on Mt. Snow. These two are especially cute:

Very nice mitten. And your little guy is adorable. There's something about pictures of children enjoying snow that is just happiness-inducing.

yay snow!

I love your mitten. I've been considering making a stranded mitten, but I think stranding doesn't agree with me.

Excellent photos! I am the King of the Snow! Great looking kiddo.

The mitten is beautiful.

Oh that last picture of the LE should be on a calendar or something. Too cute!

The mitten is lovely. I'm thinking of making some stranded mittens this year, and I find yours very inspiering, love the colours!
That snow looks so nice, ours has nearly rained away now.

Great mitten.

But wait--no hand knit hat on Little E? (Who am I kidding, I've got a 5 yo too...! I'm jealous you can get Mr. SABLE to wear mittens!)

I have fond memories of those plow mountains--loved seeing Litle E enjoy them!

Bezzie, those snow-encrusted green things on his hands are felted mittens, handed down from Owen. His hat is a polar-fleece hat that Owen sewed, but he didn't really need it that day.

I love your Komi mitten and especially the colors!

Cute photos of the LE. The mitten looks like a fun knit. I really like them, but I don't think I have much use for them these days...
