Spread The Warmth
I've never been a huge mitten fan, but Eunny has converted me this winter! My Anemoi mittens are so lovely that I was actually psyched to see snow last Thursday morning. I am really proud of myself for finishing these while its still cold outside, but also because this was really my first attempt at Fair Isle.
The only thing I really changed on these was the thumb. On the first one, I had accidentally started carrying the border lines up the inside of the thumb. Then, I realized that I actually liked how that looked so I left it. As I knitted more and more, I gained a better understanding of why its important to hold the contrast color in the same position the whole time. The second mitten was knit with this in mind and, let me tell you, I can see the difference in the two mittens. I had switched back and forth a few times with the first mitten and the changes are noticeable to me. Not a biggy, but I see what you are all talking about finally!
And since there is snow, let there be a pretty one hand in mitten picture...
