Kanagawa Mittens

I made/designed these for Ann for the Stranded Mitten Swap. I've written up the pattern but haven't had it test knit yet. I'm not sure when it will be ready, but I may wait until closer to fall. Does anyone really want to make mittens right now? Dunno.

 

Cascade 220 sport has everything I look for in a yarn for colorwork - great color selection, excellent price, nice weight to give the right density to the finished fabric.

    Mine! All mine :D)
    It snowed last night so I wore them to work today. They fit me so well, also in style and personality. Again, thank you, I do appreciate them, K. <3

    I want to make mittens now, and continuously. I fear I may be in the minority.

    these are so beautiful, don't think I'd ever take them off!

    Since it would probably take me forever to finish them (I am new to colorwork) I would love to see the pattern up asap. Maybe then I could finish them in time for fall!
