Ok, I can't resist posting these pictures. They are a Christmas gift, but I'm pretty sure the recipient has no idea that I even have a blog, so I think I'm safe.
I knit these mittens using Patons Shetland Chunky yarn. I have never used this yarn before but I really liked how soft it is. It's only 15% wool, but they feel just great, and they are machine washable! I used Ann Budd's mitten pattern.
Now, one thing I know for sure is that as much as I want to BE Martha Stewart, I'm NOT. The mittens were knit and I decided to add the snowflake pattern after browsing through the MS Holiday Gift magazine (I adore it by the way). I think it took longer for me to figure out how to add the snowflake design than it did to knit the mittens in the first place, but I'm very happy with the way they turned out.
