Mittens

Winter is upon us in Ireland. Well not winter, but it's in the 50's and 60's. The days are getting shorter and the feel is in the air. I love the autumn.
My hands and feet are always cold. I love mittens, gloves, hats and scarves. Really anything that will keep me warm. I saw the Target Wave Mittens in the most recent Interweave, so I got started. They are for children, but the large size fits me. Just adjusted the length a bit before the decrease and added a few rows to the thumb. Really easy and fast. Started the blue/brown and finished within a couple hours, making changes as I went. The other took less time as I knew what to do. Now I have a non-matching set. Will continue to work on the other identical set. Really fun. Not sure how many pairs of mittens I will have this year. Hate to think of it.

they look very nice, Holly. I can't believe that the temperatures are getting cooler in Ireland.

Is there such a thing as second mitten syndrome? I love the colours you have used.
