Some fun little mitts

I just thought I'd share this quick post about some fun mitts I've just enjoyed knitting. I think I've made four of them so far, but I only have pictures of two of them. The pattern is the Lacefield Mitts by Adrienne Krey. I first came across the Blue Leaf Headband, also by Adrienne, and clicked through to the mitts. They are extremely quick to knit (I knit the most recent one within two hours on a plane ride) and the results are fantastic.
NOTE: I've knit 6 of the headbands too, but I don't have any pictures of those yet. I'll put them up as soon as I do. They are as addictive to knit as the mitts.

So far, I've knit three of them in Classic Elite Waterlily (I love this yarn!) in a golden yellow, green and rust red colors, and one in Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Cadmium Colorway. The pictures below are of the rust red and Malabrigo Mitts. As usual, thanks to Zeina Newman for being a willing model.

First, the dark red/rust red one:



And the pair in Malabrigo Merino Worsted (cadmium colorway). How bright is that yellow? I love it!!



As my Korean friends will say, "Yeppeo da!"(means "pretty") Enjoy the rest of the week!
