Jane Austen Mittens
For Christmas 2012, my mother-in-law gave me the magazine, Jane Austen Knits (Fall 2012). It was love at first sight. I loved nearly every pattern in the magazine, but these were the mitts I chose to knit. I want to knit more of the patterns, but I have the case of "too many patters ~ too little time."
The Mitts were fairly easy to knit, though I have been knitting for several years. I love i-cords for the lace-ups and I wear these mitts quite often. I am a shorter person, so the mitts go up my arm about halfway between my wrist and my elbow, so they are good if I am a bit on the cool side but still need to use my fingers.
