No more close ups!

The manly mittens are complete...well, they have been for a few days, and there has been a flurry of knitting going on here...with no blogging (as many of you could tell by the lack of bandwith for my photos. Oh...am I using that much...I don't think so...please stop stealing my bandwith whomever you are)



Started: November 11, 2007
Finished: I don't know...a week ago?
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in green and black (one ball of each)
Pattern: Manly Mittens
This is a great beginners project for colourwork. A really simple pattern, and there is no yarn twisting, only floats. Give it a go!
My DH actually expressed an interest in these...hmmm...and another gets added to the list!
(yeah, I am stopping with the close up photos...never before have I noticed so many wrinkles. I am aging people...and I am noticing it...it is a sad day)

Any who...Hats...prepare yourselves for more hats...
I've actually got a simple little hat pattern to share with you. I knit one...that my son had to have...so I knit another...that my other son claimed...then I knit the one from the list that I had intended to do...so let's say it has been test knitted a couple times. I actually am going to make another! Hopefully I will have it for you by next week...this weekend is a little crazy.

Love the mittens, and I think you look great:) Keep those close-ups comin'.

Love the mittens, indeed!

I don't notice any crone-chasms in that photo, I think you may be too hard on yourself! Besides, the occasional "crinkle" is just a life-line, a natural merit badge, and I'm certain you are earning yours with smiles and laughter.

Good lookin' mittens. And no wrinkles, you lie!

I love your pictures--such great angles. And wrinkles? Please. You look great. (So do the mittens....now I want to make a pair.)

I've been reading your blog for awhile now and even though I don't have a clue how old you are, you have a beautiful complexion. I can't even see the infamous "crows feet" on your face. Nope, wrinkles aren't a problem.
Love the mittens too!

Marvelous mittens! I'm going to try knitting a pair soon.

You look great. I had a terrifying moment in the bathroom mirror about a week ago -- I think I need more than Clinique's All About Eyes to combat what's going on around my eyes. Sigh...
