Mittens! They're not finished, but I'm posting them now because I ran out of yarn and who knows how long it will take for the emergency provisions to arrive. These are EZ's Norwegian Mittens, from Knitters Almanac in Knitpicks Telemark. They do not stray far from her pithy instructions and chart, as I was just looking for something mindless as entertainment on the plane and during the wedding rehearsal. My colorwork is rusty, so this is a good refresher.
The queer thing about mittens (also booties, in my experience): my gauge ALWAYS changes significantly between the first and second mitt. I usually end up knitting three mitts and frogging the first, and #s 2 and 3 always match. There are other little differences between mitt 1 and mitt 2 I'll fill you in on in my FO report, but let's just say that in the spirit of EZ, there will be no pair exactly like this one!
Okay, thanks for the pâté, but I gotta motor if I'm going to make it to that job on time! (sorry for the hurried post!)
