Mitt EnvyI have an FO! whoot whoot! Surely that means the Return of the Mojo. Yes I meant to capitalize it, I mean it IS mojo people and it’s back, baby. Yes I called you baby I’m running around here like a basketball player who just scored the winning 3 point shot at the buzzer when we were behind by 2 to win by 1. If we were in a locker room I’d smack you on the butt!

Did that work? Cuz I”m not very sporty, but dang I feel good! LOL

May I present Mitty Envy. I picked up this yarn at one of my LYS when I was searching for yarn for the Surf Hoodie (still waiting on the needles). I HAD to have it. So yummy brown and blue. Of course I don’t knit socks but has that ever stopped me from buying yarn before? Hell no!

As I was searching Ravelry for something to make with this (I seriously LOVE ravelry) I came across Mitt Envy. whoo these babies are already in my queue because I read Weeza’s blog because she’s awesome. Sweet. It’s like they were made for each other! This pattern is fabulous this yarn is fabulous. Yarn meet pattern, pattern meet yarn.

Now that I know I can make mitts and gloves with sock yarn I’m so excited! Guess what everybody is getting for Xmas? These are staying with me cuz I loves them. 😉

Picture 152I started these the morning of the Ice Storm, 12/9/07, while I was still optimistic about the power coming back on. Tab asked me for a pair and I said I’d make them after my Christmas knitting was done. Well I had no power and was stressed out and the yarn was calling to me, so I started them. I finished them in the hotel on Tuesday 12/11/07. These went so much faster and easier than my first pair. Wow I’ve come a long way since then! 🙂 I never finished that pair but now I”m inspired to get them back out and frog and reknit them.
