My New Mitts

January 18, 2009

My latest knitting project was fingerless mitts, which I’ve wanted for a long time. I really love them! They go with the green scarf I made last year with the pockets.


I have to give Josh props for his pictures. He’s such a natural. Isn’t the below picture cool? No, it’s not a Photoshop trick. Josh took the picture looking through a peep hole we bought at Home Depot to install in our door. He ran around the house taking pictures through it before installing it and got some really cool effects!

    I love the fingerless mittens. I’m thinking that on these cold, rainy, dark nights in Scotland I should earn to knit. I really want mittens like yours.

    I was going to say – great pictures! Go Josh!

    I learned how to knit once. Then I promptly forgot. And now I crochet afghans. I have five unfinished afghans hiding in my house. With skeins and skeins of soft, soft yarn that I buy when I’m depressed and need something very soft and warm to touch.

    Congratulations on finishing your mittens. 😉

    I’m glad knitting worked out for you. I haven’t returned to it since the frustrating time I had on my inaugural venture at your house.
    The mitts look toasty.

    Cool picture. I’m still trying to figure out how you get a reflection of yourself .

    Zoanna, it’s not a reflection. Actually, the camera “sees” both through the peep hole and then is wide enough to capture what it “sees” outside of the peep hole. Just as if it were taking a regular picture. So it’s capturing me twice. I don’t know if that makes sense, but I tried.

    I want to learn to knit. Maybe I’ll make cool mitts like that, too.

    Love Josh’s shot there.
