Finished Knit: Dashing
I joked on twitter that I caused a cold snap because I knit something warm for my husband and should have knit him a tube top instead so it would be warm and sunny :) But something tells me he wouldn't appreciate that...
I knit these mitts using the Dashing pattern from Knitty and they were a quick and easy knit, there are only three cable rounds on each mitt, so it's a great project for knit night or tv watching time. The yarn is one skein of Everyday Soft from Premiere, a really soft and nice to work with acrylic. When making things for my husband, washable is key!
And as an aside, his hands aren't as pale in real life as in this photo, the bright sun reflecting on the snow was making everything super bright and reflective. Although my half Finnish half Swedish husband is pretty dang pale, he doesn't glow in the dark as this picture might lead you to believe, ha ha!
