Eye Candy

Happy Valentines Day!  I’m not feelin’ the love; the fur-girls decided this was just like any other day and we should be up at 6:45 or so.  They did let me go back to bed about 90 minutes later, but then a lady we know called the house to check on the outdoor burn laws…

I owe you a finished object report, and assuming MJ delivered them this morning according to plan, here are my Ka-Vangeline mitts.

Pattern: Evangeline, available only as a free Ravelry download, since Magknits fell off the face of the earth.  I did the short version, as written, save the thumb.  The recipient has short fingers, so I only did five rounds on the thumb.  I REALLY liked this pattern!

Yarn:  Bernat Natural Cashmere.  (Which actually has only a TINY amount of the good stuff in it, not even enough to tempt Gretchen.)  I liked it though, right much for an acrylic blend.  Didn’t even use a whole skein, so I have enough to do another pair for me.

Needles:  US #6 KA bamboo circs.  I like KA bamboo, I really do.

Verdict:  Yet another mitt pattern I’d do again.  It seems I like mitts…

Now, to go decorate for that dance!
