Time out for knitting!

There's always the photography and always the knitting, but they don't seem to mash up as often as they should these days!

Brilliant Miriam Felton's Dimorphous Mittens, which have been on my list for a long, long time.  I cast on the first inner mitten on a Thursday, while at the spelling bee.  I cast on the second inner mitten the following Thursday, in the car on the way to Milwaukee, in order to have something to knit on the plane while winging westward.  They were both finished (ends woven in and everything!) by last Thursday, when I cast on the first outer mitt.  The outer mitt knits up quickly without a cuff.  The keyhole is fabulous, and that three-stitch I-cord bind off is, well, absolutely brilliant.

I rode along on a quick trip to Egg Harbor in Door County with DH on Saturday and knit much of the way, making great progress.  We drove back along the bay and stopped several times to marvel at the big waves -- and even swells -- on the water that day, not to mention the very dramatic sky.

I have the thumb and bind-off to finish on the second mitt, a few stitches to graft on both, and then I can go button hunting!!  I am hoping to find something perfect in grandma's button box.  There may be a few more details on my Ravelry project page.

Love it! Love your pictures, your knitting, your words of description. Nicely done!

Love the mittens! I have half the yarn (outer mitts) to make some for myself.

They are beautiful mitts! I'll bet they're warm, too.

These are fabulous! I have eyed them before and not sure it really gets cold enough here to need them. I love the sky at the beach. Thanks for your wonderful photography, which always amazes me.

You will love them so much!!! I wear mine all the time!

Love them! I admired Norma's protype pair way back but have I knit them yet ? Noooooooo.

I have had those mittens in my queue FORever. Yours are wonderful. I'm in the mood for mittens. . . maybe it's time!

Now I am in the mood to knit mittens!
