I had a hankering for some color work so I made myself some rather unseasonal mittens.

I used Heather Desserud's pattern for Lotus Mittens, but I changed it up a little because the original pattern was much too long for me. The green is Knit Pick's Gloss and the multicolored is some hand dyed sock yarn I got from sarahj2001 in a swap.






And here's Alby, my Little Visitor, modeling them for me. Wink

I don't knit so this pattern looks very complicated to me.  But these mitts are wonderful, and I love the colours.

Thanks for all the lovely compliments!

The pattern isn't too bad. It would be ambitious for a beginner but once you've had experience with shaping and colorwork it's not too complicated.
