I just finished up Eunny Jang's Anemoi Mittens.  I cast on for the project on Friday and finished up both late Sunday evening.  Whew! 

This mitten is pretty sexy, I have to say. Besides being gorgeous, Eunny's patterns are (surprise, surprise! Wink) beautifully written.  They mittens have a purled side on either end which I think gives the mittens a nice, unexpected edge.





(Both pictures were taken pre-blocking.  As I was on a deadline, I didn't have time to let them dry for days!)

I would definitely make these mittens again, as they were entertaining and not too difficult, though I would plan on giving myself more than four days to start and finish them! I felt a bit like the kid who had a 40-page paper due in the class the next day.. and hadn't started researching the topic yet. Smiley

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
