I'd been craving some hand-knit mittens all winter long but was too swamped with applications, and long-term projects, and a number of other graduation-related obligations to actually make them. Things have slowed down (thankfully) and I finally made myself some cozy mitts. They're 100% acrylic (oh, the squeaky goodness) and I love them. They have little buttons at the wrists to keep them closed and add some interest. The main yarn reminds me of rotten wood with little worms peeking out of it everywhere. I love them. Also, here's a gratuitous mouse photo  Grin

i think these are perfect for spring... the yarn does give off the essence of moss... maybe you could sub in little flower buttons if you made more! and also, your mouse is SOOO cute.... my mom won't let me get one, plus i'm  afraid she'll panic and kill it or call the exterminator... but great job on the mittens... also, do you happen to remember what yarn that was?

Glad you dig the mittens Wink. I don't remember exactly what yarn or what color it is  because it'd been in my stash for over a year and it lost it's little paper band thing. I do know that it was some sort of "Joann Sensations" yarn. I've been looking for it online but I can't find it. Your best hope is to go to Joann's and just look around for it.

I love a good pair of mittens.

But not half as much as I love a mouse photo! Too many knitter's cats getting all the love these days!
