Unseasonable - part 2

Going with my own trend of knitting out of season, I've finished a pair of Bella's Mittens. As before, these are samples for FiberTrades.com

These are knit in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky - they are a relatively quick knit. Ravelry details are here. And warm! I wish I had a pair of these back when I was college and graduate school. My time spent in Providence and Syracuse involved a lot of walking and those places do get winter! The blend of wool and mohair results in a little bit of fuzz factor.

It is not the easiest trick to photograph yourself while wearing mittens. The Lorax is still too small to have her take the photo and she did not want to wear the mittens either. She was interested in seeing herself when I flipped the display around, set the self-timer and had the camera on the stairs...

And then she wanted to do more.

FYI, a samurai sword makes a great mitten display:

Now those look super-thick, warm, and cozy! Seriously great idea for displaying them, too. ;)

PS, thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!
