Thursdays Knit and Natter – Hinksey Mittens finished at last.

At last some nice warm mittens all ready for winter. We had a bit of a gale the other day and it got me to thinking that I must really finish these lovely mittens. Since that day I have took them into University and back again every day without a single stitch being knitted.  I have good intentions and then other work simply takes over, that and I don’t want to be knitting a complicated cable on the train. But at last they are ready and I do love a bit of cable work to admire. Mittens 1

They took nearly a month for me to knit, which when you think what else I am cramming into a day isn’t too bad. Mittens 3

I’d have liked glamorous photographs but this is what’s attainable today,  you’ll have to look out for shots of them in my winter photographs.Mittens 4

But one thing is for certain, I love them and will most probably be making more cabled mittens in the future, they are just so cute. Mittens 6


I am deeply smitten.

And for those that are interested, this is Hinksey by Lily France, knitted in Fyberspates Scrumptious Aran (45% silk, 55% merino) in Moss on 4mm DPN.
