Hello!
I haven't had much time for knitting these past few months (my life's been SO hectic).
However I did have time to knit two pairs of mitten things.
The dashing fingerless gloves are from knitty.com. I moderated the pattern on the cable to create extra padding for my boyfriend. I gave them to him after a bad bike accident involving the chain of a tow truck and his wheels (on a bike path!). His hands and wrist got cut up and I hope these continue to protect him. I finished them a few months ago but have been lazy to post.
The orange pair are mittens of my own design (long and tight) to fit my tiny but long hands properly.
I'm living in Montreal these days and needed something to cheer up the dreary and cold weather. These do just that! The orange is malabrigo and the gold is just thread I knit in.

Hope you enjoy them! (click to make big)

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.


The northern downpour sends its love.
