Finished Michaels mittens. 64 stitch cast on increasing to 80 stitches on #2 needles using just over 2 skeins of Elsabet Lavold Silky Wool. A simple pattern but a pain to knit because half the front consists of solid rows of colour which involves carrying the yarn behind and twisting every three or 4 stitches. I'll mail them out Saturday after they are washed and blocked.
Eli served as the backdrop. Thanks Eli. Now m mans hands will be nice and warm this winter.
