Baby It's Cold Outside!

With snow moving in and getting serious I am too! The windchill here can easy reach 65 degrees below zero. Our biggest snow was about 3 feet deep. Wait time at a bus stop can be over an hour so here you better dress up real warm. This single ply pure merino is as soft as a kitten. It feels just like a long strip of top ready to spin. straight and smooth. I am using size 3 bamboo dpn and it is so soft. I had to make mittens because this yarn says pet me all day long!

These are So Cute! I seldom have worn mittens, so I haven't knit them....but...looks like you're convincing me otherwise! Looking forward to pattern! (I'm thinking some of my STR might do a marvelous job, here...)

The mittens look perfect....soft, warm, and lovely. Stay safe and warm!

Oh I want to try mittens so badly. I really like the way your thumbs look. Perfect! Is the pattern from a book?
