Hey everyone! I finally have pictures of my Broad Street Mittens, along with some small projects (tea cozy and two dishcloths). The mittens were made using Online self-striping sock yarn and some buttons off an old cardigan, and everything else was from discounted Lily Sugar 'n Cream. :happydance:

The pattern is here (http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=128) but I changed the top of it just a bit so I can leave the cozy on most of the time and still brew the tea. Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone! :woot:

Thanks everyone for such awesome feedback! It's just a pattern from Knitty. If you found it too hard, don't give up! I have to admit that the way it's written was pretty confusing on some spots, but you can kind of improvise if you need to, because I think the basic concept of mitten/hobo glove is a really functional item!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed my work! Thanks :)

Great job on everything! I love the pic of your mittens with the piano. I was a flute/music major in college-I loved it.

Great work. :cheering: I particularly love the mittens. They are so clever. Now you will be able to keep playing in style if the heat goes off. :) They are really attractive and practical too. :muah:

I love the mittens. Great colors. I think that Peaches n' cream still makes a colorway that like one.
