She Knits!

My current knitting obsession is mittens. Mittens make great summer projects. Not so bulky, easy to take with you while on vacations and living the busy summer life. This particular project is the Chevalier Mittens by the talented Mari Muinonen. Pattern can be found on Ravelry as well. The yarn is the always fantastic Cascade 220 Heathers.

I love this cable pattern. It keeps your attention and is fast moving. The chart is simple to follow. I have one down and one more to go. That is the only problem with mittens. You have to make 2 of them!!

I am really looking forward to wearing these this fall while walking the little man to kindergarten. In the meantime my list of mittens to make this year continues to grow.
