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!
