mordues de mitaines kal


Pattern: St. Albans Valentine Cable Mitts (scroll down for download)
Yarn: Elann Baby Cashmere, mulled grape
Needles: 2.75 mm

I feel like I'm going to burst. I've been wanting to show you these since last November!!! But I had to keep it under wraps until Feb 1st for the Fingerless Gloves Fanatics Designer Feb 2009 KAL. Well now that the time has come, I can show you what these look like!!! Yay! These mitts were designed to match the St. Albans Valentine Cable Scarf.

(Yes, I know, it is not Feb 1st yet, not even in GMT ... however we've got James' blessing to post early)

The purple one is mine. Susan made the red one, visit her at her blog here.

Note: Chart last updated 6 March 2009 to correct typos in definitions for BC & FC.

Hope y'all enjoy knitting this mitt.

If you're wondering why all my photos look a bit "lumpy" around the left wrist, you can ready about it here.

I've added these to my queue and will definitely be knitting them as soon as I'm done with a scarf I'm making for a homeless man.
