EZ Spruce mittens



In Knitting Around, Elizabeth wrote a chapter called "A Mittful of Mittens". This Winter Spruce pattern was one of which Elizabeth wasn't really fond, but Meg loved! I really enjoyed making these mittens and the afterthought thumb worked fantabulously!
I used size 8 dpn's and Lion Brand Alpaka yarn...almost one skein of white and a little over one skein of brown. I understand the yarn has been discontinued...too bad, it's a nice yarn.
Glad these are finished since we have a goodly chance of snow in SW PA throughout the rest of this week!
I had shown 1 1/3 mittens earlier...see, I really did finish them!

  • Thanks! I never used to be a mitten person, but these may change my habits! I have a feeling they'll keep my hands warm while shoveling snow!
