That's right, tonight we're going to celebrate because we've struck gold -- Olympic gold!
Here are the lovely mittens, resting and blocking out all the inconsistencies:
And here are the palm sides -- I did manage to make a left and a right mitten.
And the stats:
Nordic Mittens from the Winter 2004 Interweave Knits
Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport (the yarn called for, just in different colors)
US #0 & #1 needles
Completed for the Yarn Harlot's 2006 Knitting Olympics
To be given to my sister as a birthday gift
I have almost enough yarn left to make a third pair of these mittens. They were fun, but not that much fun. The yarn will have to hang out until I can think of something else to make with it.
For now, back to reading!
* Maybe you're saying, "Just wait a minute here -- the gold rush was in 1849!" The story is that the main rush was in 1849 but they discovered gold before that -- duh -- they'd have to have a little time to spread the word before people could just drop everything and run to California. My opinion -- don't get your history from sports teams.
