Here's a quick pic and stats for these great mitts!

This is a very simple project and pattern. The mitts practically knit themselves. I knit (or is "knitted" the correct term?) this pattern with the magic loop techique almost exclusively. The thumbs were the only things knitted on DPNs.

I knitted these puppies while watching a couple of movies that we acquired for Christmas gifts....
The Lord of the Rings - First Movie
Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix.

Ta-Da - mitts done. Ends woven in tonight. YEAH! Did I mention that I detest weaving in ends and sewing things together? I didn't? Well, I SO do.
So Happy Saturday night! And phew - I finished these before Adie went back to TN - these mitts are/were part of her Christmas gift. TTFN! Ta-Ta for now!
