Maine Morning Mitts

>> Friday, June 10, 2011

A few years ago I loosely followed along with Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter Almanac and May was for mitts.  I really intended to make a whole slew of mitts this last May but only one pair was finished.  The Maine Morning Mitts. 

It is hard to get a 'catch your eye' photo of black mitts knit in a rib pattern so how about you check out my manicure, or at least what is left of my manicure :)

Last Friday night I went out with some girlfriends for a belated birthday celebration and we got manis and pedis and margaritas.  You know you are having a good time when one conversation (at least what seems like one conversation) lasts two hours. 

This next shot shows that the mitts aren't too long and that the nail polish is coming off the tips of my nails....hence the reason I rarely get manicures, the polish is off within days.

And last we have the modeled shot by my four year old son complete with airplane pajamas.  I swear the mitts have thumbs.

These are a fast and easy knit, as most mitts are, and definitely masculine enough to hand off to the nearest man.  Very comfortable and the pattern is free.  Perfect thing to work on if summer has hit your neck of the woods and the temperature is climbing.  We are heading out of town to the mountains this weekend to cool off.  I'll be back on Monday!

Your mitts and manicure look great. I know what you mean about manicures only last a few days. That's why I don't trreat myself to them too often either. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
