Mitten Smitten? Uh, no.

I have finished both pairs of Peekaboo Mittens. They were both knit in Encore worsted weight by Plymouth. They came out as per the pattern, but they just really lack any pizazz.

This project will not likely start the beginning of a mitten knittin' craze. Admittedly, they do not take long and the pattern is not tough, but they just don't do much for me. Paired with the Twisted Vine Scarves in the matching color the mittens will make a nice gift, but this pattern will not be one that I plan to repeat.

Maybe I will like the mittens better tomorrow. Unfortunately, I am THE Grinch today. I am agitated with everything and everyone. In fact, I could hunt bear with a switch. Let's hope that tomorrow is a better day...
p.s. Notice the "embiggen" feature now works with my pics.

Sis, everything doesn't have to be a show stopper. These mittens are meant to wear when doing some kind of work, right? And we can all agree that work is not pretty. I think they will be great and may make some for myself in the near future.

Sounds like a good day for a bit of chocolate, a movie, and some *fun* knitting...Alan Dart, perhaps?!?
