End of May Mittens

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes you sent to SKK & IJK! They really enjoyed reading every single one. It was a hectic birthday for both of them - we weren't even able to have cake until 11:30 pm! As SKK says, "it was as good as a birthday on a Tuesday in January could be". Don't worry about them though we all went out for a fantastic dinner together last Friday night.

Now on to my new favorites, the End of May mittens. I haven't been outside without these beauties since I finished them a week and a half ago. I love them that much. Stranded knitting is wonderful for making mittens extra warm with that bonus layer of wool it adds. Then there's Mandy's fabulous pattern, so pretty, so well written - a perfect combination.

So very pretty! Thanks for your kind words about the pattern, too. It means a lot!
Happy Belated Birthday to your girls!

Those are gorgeous! Love the colors. Into the (very long) Rav queue they go!

Just finished a pair, too, and I agree, it's a great pattern, will probably make more! But first Andrea's shawl :-)

I have those queued up and love them. The colors you chose are fantastic together.

So incredibly beautiful!

Wow! I love those! I just have no occasion to wear mittens, living in Los Angeles. (Not the best location for a knitter, for sure.)

Looks like they probably were a quick knit, too!

ohh they look great!
I normally try not to buy patterns, but only use those that are for free.. but I might just make an exception...:)

Wow - lovely mittens! Thank you for sharing them, perfection!

I love them, the colors are great!


They look great! I love the bright lining.
