Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope you’re having a lovely one! Maybe you’re eating some chocolate or sipping on a mimosa. Or maybe you’ve treated yourself to some nice flowers, or, since you’re a knitter, you’re going to go splurge on a lovely new skein of yarn. (That’s my kind of treat!)
Love may (or may not) be in the air, but it’s definitely in these adorable mittens. I really like mittens- they’re like fancy socks for your hands. (And you know how much I like socks.) But, I just realized I haven’t made any mittens in a really long time- maybe in over a year. Now, this could be because we don’t have a ton of use for mittens up here in Seattle (it never really gets cold enough to require them), but I still think I should make… no need to make some fancy new mittens. And why not make some Valentine-y ones?
These chocolate-y mittens look crazy cozy, and I love the cute, oversized cable running up the back. They look like they might be a little over-warm for Seattle, but I might be able to convince myself that I need to make them anyway.
Hot Chocolate Mittens by knittedblissJCNothing says “Valentine’s Day like roses, and these rose-themed mittens are just beautiful. I especially love the tiny rose on the thumb! And it’s been a while since I went all-in on fancy color work.
Ruffles and Roses by JennyPennyBut I think these mittens (mitts, really) are more my style. You know I love a good rainbow, and mitts are more appropriate for Seattle weather, anyway. Plus, Can you imagine a better excuse to splurge on all those mini skeins of brightly-colored yarn?
