The mittens have not had a formal debut. Winter weather returns soon, and the mittens will have their days.
The gauge (huge) guaranteed a fast knit. The pattern is here.
Polarknit yarn, colorway Mallard (There is even a Polartec tag on the yarn ball.)
Needles: Crystal Palace dpns, #11 US
Mr. Etherknitter bought me a netbook this week. I cannot understand how I have lived without this technology. Computer for the knitting bag? Yes! Blogging at Rhinebeck? Yes! WiFi interface and a real keyboard? Yes!
He suggested I knit a case for it. He nominated Polarknit yarn for the honor.
Sheer genius. It isn't often that a nonknitting husband can predict AND create the future like that for his knitting wife.
