ok, so i am always totally *ASTOUNDED* by the way that a quick 2-15 second shot of a knit item in a film or tv show will send knitters into a total flurry of geekasming followed by subsequent (and IMMEDIATE) attempts to suss out exactly how to re-create that item. case in point - bella's mittens from the twilight movie. i remember seeing these popping up all OVER the web shortly after the movie came out, and while i'm not really a fan of the whole twilight phenomenon, i do appreciate the fact that the movie inspired soooo many patterns for these lovely looking mittens.

the pattern i used was this one by subliminalrabbit (http://subliminalrabbit.blogspot.com/2008/12/bellas-mittens-updated-pattern.html)

the only mod i made is that i used dpns the whole time. i totally loved knitting this pattern, and so far i only have one mitten done, but i plan to finish the other one this week. i am making them to be used as a raffle prize or an auction item for my office's united way fundraising campaign. the first mitten took prolly a total of 3 hours, but i was watching tv the whole time, so i was a bit distracted.

i am using some leftover red heart super saver, which is definitely not the nicest feeling yarn in the world, but will totally do for a freebie project. besides, the colour is actually really nice, despite being a colour that i would never personally wear. i'm not a neutrals kinda gal, can't you tell?

They look wonderful! I really like the color for em actually!

I've been meaning to make my own "bella's mittens" in Vanna's choice. Still cheap but a bit softer.
and the paramore hat "decode" which I saw later at Hot Topic and was like WHAT?

But yea..I ramble

great job!

They are beautiful! I love cabled knits, and these long mitten patterns are gorgeous.
I am not into the Twilight deal, I have never even watched the movie.  I just love a pretty mitten  Grin

Beautiful!  I'm probably the only one who hasn't seen this movie yet...BUT your mittens are so nice.  I like the white, the cables seem to pop a bit more.  Great job!

The movie was alright (I may be shot for that statement, but hey) but those mittens are beautiful.  I love them in white.

thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! Smiley i do agree that cables look really great on a lighter coloured yarn. i also love a big chunky cable like the one in these mittens!
