Fiddleheads - DONE!

I finished and blocked the second pair of Fiddlehead Mittens this week. Since my Flip Top Mittens are getting a bit ragged, these will be my new every day mittens. So far I've had 3 people at work try to take them from me! :)

Now that I've done two sets of these mittens (one with lining, one without) I am very much done with the pattern. I may try variations at some point, but for now it's being set aside. I need something new.

Pattern: Fiddlehead Mittens from Hello Yarn
Needle: Size 3 - I'm using a 9" circular for the main body of the mitten. I cannot believe how fast these go when you're not changing needles all the time!
Yarn: Manos Silky for the outer mitten. Sport weight Frog Tree Alpaca for the inner lining.

I just discovered that we have a really nice backdrop with lights in one of our storage closets at work. Apparently the artists use it for posing photos. Guess what I'll be using more of?!

So beautiful!! I adore the yellow lining too :)

Gah. Does this mean I'm all alone over at the Rav group now? ;)

And how lucky that work has such a good spot for photographs for you! Winter is always so hard for taking shots of things....
