Finished Mittens

Yep, I finished the Broad Street Mittens out of my own Shetland/Angora blend handspun yesterday:

And it cooled down to a balmy 87 today instead of 90ish. See what knitting winter wear can do for weather? Nevermind global warming and what not. If knitters everywhere didn't work with cotton and other fibers, the world may end...OK, can you tell it's Friday and my brain is numb and I'm ready to go home and fondle yarn again? I'm getting this urge to spin, so I might do that tonight and see what I can come up with. Not sure what exactly I want to spin though. Maybe more fingering weight wool so I can make more mittens and such.

Anyways, not much knitting happened yesterday aside from finishing the mitten. I brought the scarf with me to work today, but I have to teach an extra class since one of the other English teachers is out, so I won't get as much quality knitting time in. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Knit on...

Those look great! I didn't know they could be such a quick knit. :D Of course, I kind of multitask, so I've got 4 projects on the needles right now. That might be why my socks take a while.
