Pinks and Purples

The bloom mittens have been moving very slowly, but I'm finally working on the second one.

I needed something quicker going, too, so I started up some mittens inspired by a friend's first socks:

Pink mittens

I've finished these two pairs of mittens a couple of weeks ago already. The ones on the left are very basic mittens with purls every ninth round (women's size), the Yarn is 7 veljestä Polkka, needles 3½ mm.

The ones on the right are for my 6-year-old niece. The pattern is from Novita Winter 2008. The honeycomb pattern was a lot easier to make than what it looks. The yarn is also 7 veljestä, needles 3½ mm.

Green cables

It's really hard to take a picture of your own hands, but after several attempts I finally managed to take a decent picture. Here's my sixth pair, the pattern is from Novita Winter 2008, the yarn is 7 veljestä and the needles are 3½ mm. A nice pattern, I'm planning to make a hat to accompany the mittens.
