Gnome mittens done just in time for…uh…winter…well not so much. It’s still kinda (alot warm), but they’re done anyway.
I followed the pattern and even used the yarn and colors called for. I figure SpillyJane’s got it all worked out, so why mess with that. I still have enough yarn to make about two more pairs of these mittens. Don’t all run for the exits at once. I really like these cute gnomes, and if I do make another pair (for me too) I’d make more ribbing and omit a set of gnomes. That way they’d be really tight for those super cold days waiting for the hotel shuttle in Detroit/Chicago/Buffalo in January. But as they are, they fit well and are very warm. I hope blocking will make the gnomes look less, well, lumpy.
Project evaluation: Success and good fair isle practice.
