Mittens, mittens. Smitten with mittens.

Why, yes. I have been knitting mittens.

Begun on the 29th of June, completed on the 9th of July, these mittens took nearly no time at all. They were quick, fun and easy, and I am fond of William. Who is William? Well. You need to go to the Met! William It Was Really Nothing is the pattern name, SpillyJane is the designer.

If I were to knit these again, I would add thumb gussets for more comfortable-for-me wearing. However, this time around? I just had fun finishing something fast. Next up? 29 July: Tulip Mittens from Riihivilla

(Particulars regarding William It Was Really Nothing are here: Ravelry.)

About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.
