I’ve slowly been making progress on a number of different projects lately, but due to a bout of endless grey days with brief sunny breaks I never seem to manage to take advantage of, I don’t have much to show you there. So instead I’ll show you and older FO that I finally was able to get decent pictures of.

This has been a popular pattern lately and with good reason, it’s simple and sweet. It’s a very straightforward mitten pattern in a relatively heavy weight yarn that knits up fast. To keep things interesting it features the ever-loved owl and a unique thumb gusset. And the end result is great. I love wearing these mittens, because they are both cozy and adorable. Not to mention the response once people figure out they are owls. I wore them daily for that last batch of cold days we had and I know they’ll be featured regularly on my little mitts next winter.
