 My Thermal Mitts are done and just in time for yet another Arctic blast from the North. Temps in the teens almost seems like the norm these days. Notice how well they match. I did not do that on purpose. I just knit using the ball until it ran out and they did that matchy thing all on their own. I couldn't have done that if I tried. Thanks again, Wandering Cat, I love them!

As soon as the mitts were a done deal, I cast on a doggie sweater using the same thermal stitch pattern. I have a feeling that February might turn out to be as brutal as January. I really hope I'm wrong. Normal temps around here are supposed to be 40 not 4.


  1. This certainly is a brutal winter that's for sure. We can't seem to even get above zero for any length of time here. I think I would be happy with 4 and 40 would be a gift from heaven. We have the puppy sweater making thing in common though. Louie has one on at all times so I'm constantly making him new ones. I just made one using your idea of the two rectangles.

  2. They turned out great!
    We just got through the latest arctic blast and it's just above freezing today - almost feels like spring in comparison

  3. I just love your mitts. The yarn color is gorgeous. And they match! We're having a warm-up here, temps in the 30s.

  4. THose fingerless came out so pretty! I love the stitch pattern and the yarn changes!

  5. Found your blog by accident while looking for a picture of a's how things happen now with the internet! Love your work, especially that you knit and quilt! I will enjoy following your posts!
