One down...

Last night I finished my first Mid-Atlantic Woman Mitten (aka Northman Mittens). What a cool design. I love the lining; you pick up stitches underneath the braid and essentially knit another smaller gauge mitten which you then tuck into the outer mitten. Beautiful.

Too bad I have to make another one. I'd love to move on to making a sock, but one mitten and one sock do not a pair make. I'll bang out this next mitten and then it will be time to tackle the Handstrikket renovation. I've got the techniques worked out in my head and am ready to go. Finishing that cardigan will be a true accomplishment - especially if it fits when I'm done!

  1. I love love love this mitten! But I think that I would DIE from sweat if I wore them for more than 5 minutes! :)

  2. lol... you're right, they are HOT. I'll definitely be wearing these on the very coldest days of the year. and considering it's been in the 90s here in DC, these mittens are definitely out of place. congrats on getting your sweater done, girl! I want to see it!

  3. Great job on these mittens, they look great. My family in Canada could use mittens like that, there's not much use for them in Florida though...
