At last! The mittens are complete! After the testing time they gave me, I am in the end very happy with the finished result.

I worked them at a tighter gauge than the peerie flooers hat – the fabric is dense and velvety.

Here are the cuffs

. . which are cosily lined . . .

. . . and finished with an obligatory icord.

I’m afraid these quick peeks are all you are going to see for today – they need a good blocking and some modelled shots.
But the pattern will be released this weekend!

Meanwhile, it is almost time to harvest my peppers.

. . .and it seems that Rilke’s Southern days are properly upon us. It is about as hot here as it has been all Summer. A last chance to be bare-legged outdoors. I’m off for a walk.
