Not Pink

After spending so long on the Apricot Jacket I wanted a project I could finish quickly. Still in the mood for something wintry though... ah yes, mittens!

I've been wanting to do something with this Manos del Uruguay for the longest time. This "Autumn" colorway is not in my usual teal/blue/purple groove but I was really attracted to it when I saw it in my LYS. Nice warm colors - perfect for mittens!

I haven't made a pair of mittens since I was a kid (12 maybe?) which was a looong time ago. I had actually forgotten I even made them until my mom reminded me about them a few months ago. A horrible pink acrylic, if I remember correctly. (I'd love to see them again just to see what kind of work I did on them.) Anyway I figured it was about time to make another pair, if for no other reason than to see if I can improve on those pink ones!

Love those colors :-) I think I need to start doing mittens instead of fingerless mitts, as no-one I know wears the fingerless!!
