Beauty is...

A pile of hand knit mittens :)

Yarn: Cascade 220 (blues)
Needles: US 6 dpns
Modifications: none.
Recipient: brother's girlfriend.

Pattern: Fiddlehead Mittens (Rav link) by Hello Yarn
Yarn: Cascade 220, purple & gray
Needles: US 2, 40 inch circulars (a la Magic Loop)
Modifications: I knit this at a very tight gauge b/c I like my colorwork mittens to be "windproof" and these are most definitely! They are not lined.
Recipient: sister in law.


  1. Excellent mittens! I'm sure they will be well loved.

  2. Beautiful. They look so warm. The colors in person are much nicer.

  3. I love the purple ones! They look amazing and I am sure whomever gets them will be very happy!
