A mitten!

Sorry, no pictures yet. My camera's batteries needed to be charged. x.x The pattern is Elegant and Easy Mittens from the One Skein Designer book. I used Cascade 220 Superwash in some blue color and size 4 needles. I started it on Tuesday and finished it tonight (minus weaving in ends/blocking). I had a lot of time to knit since I had finals and I got out of school at 11:15 and 11:20 on Wednesday and Thursday. I really like the pattern because it is very simple. I've tried on the mitten numerous times to check fit and it fits very nicely and it is also very warm. I'm going to start the next one tomorrow (I promise. I will try to not get SMS (second mitten syndrome)). I also finished my Foliage hat. I added 5 rows of ribbing so it would cover my ears better.

[edit: pictures! i used my mom's camera.

Lovely hat! Nice mittens too but I really love the hat to the point of I will definitely have to add that pattern into the queue now. I'm such a sucker for purple.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog the other day. I've entered your name in the "spreadsheet of yarny goodness".
