Annemor #16.

I used Lana Grossa Lambswool sportweight (size 2 needles) for these mittens. They're extremely cushy and nice. The yarn is very springy and elastic, so my tension wasn't as even as I like- the pre-block mittens were a little puckered. But they blocked out well, and I really love them.

I feel like a broken record, but they are so beautiful Kathleen!

I have really enjoyed your mittens, Kathleen! They are so inspiring...maybe I will try a pair after Christmas! I'm curious, how do you block your mittens?

pat- I love each of them too, and I keep wanting to knit more (though the Latvian Mitten book is calling me).

kate- I just smoosh them flat on the top of my dryer. That seems to work for just about everything(socks, sweaters, mittens, hats)except lace, which has to be pinned.

Those mittens are lovely, Kathleen. I like the bright colors you use. You have such nice even carries from needle to needle--that's something I still struggle with. Maybe I just need more practice??
