What can you do with one night at a guild meeting and an episode of Moonshiners? 95% of a mitten. I am loving this pattern: Thames Street ( rav link). It's knitting up quickly, on US 5 dpns with Ella Rae classic ( color 10).
One thing you should know about the pattern is to keep your even rows loose in order to work the 3Y3 stitch ( k3tog, leave stitches on needle, yo, k3tog) which can be a little tricky.
The book in the image above? New detective novel that I'm loving...can barely put it down to knit....good thing these mittens are quick! Sometimes the discount bin at BN is worth a good long look.
