Mittens
Here is a couple pair of mittens I finished up this month. The Bird in Hand was started back in Dec but after knitting mom's, my wrists just couldn't take the worsted on size 1s.

Pattern:Bird in Hand
CO: 12/07
FO: 8/08
Needle: 1s
Yarn: Misti International Hand dyed and Brown sheep Nature spun

2nd Mitten

Pattern: Norwegian Mittens (May) by Elizabeth Zimmermann
CO: 8/08
FO: 8/08
Needle: 4s
Yarn: KP's telemark in Navy and light blue

Excuse how they look I was getting ready to pin them down to block when I took the photos...so they are not blocked yet
