I love this pattern! Oh, it would help to share what it is right??
Pattern: Manly MittsYarn: Vanna's Choice 100% Acrylic (I love this stuff!)
Needles: US 4 DPN's

I made these for my best friend for Christmas. She has promised not to look at the blog until after Christmas. I hope she doesn't peek.

Here are a couple more shots:

I am getting better with my stranded knitting. It still looks a little wonky, but over all I am pretty pleased with these. I will be making more of them.

I went to a Ravelry Group Meet Up with some fellow Central New York Knitters! I had a blast and will be going lot's more! I saw Erin and Jill and met Paige. There were other girls there too who are blogless and I didn't get to say hi to all, but the vibe was totally cool! I can't wait until the next meet up!

The mittens turned out great! And I don't think your stranding is wonky at all. I'll have to try those myself. Hmmm, should I do the felted pattern or this pattern. Decisions, decisions!

I'm really impressed with your stranding. Doesn't look wonky at all!

Eeek! This makes me think about doing the Mosaic as mittens! Love them!

Was it you that linked us to the Kitler site....cats like yours with Hitler mustaches? if not, I think you would get a kick out of it since you have such a fine looking mustached tuxedo cat.
I am originally from Skaneateles so when you write about doings in Syracuse, it takes me back to the good old days.
I enjoy reading your blog and seeing your knitting.

Great mittens! And I love the title of this post.

Wow! Those came out great!!!!! And I suspect that, even if the recipient takes a peek, she will still be surprised by how amazing they are in "real life." Nice work!!!
