finished snowflake mittens

Mom hired me to make two pairs of mittens for some friends who took her skiing. One wanted burgundy and light gray with snowflakes, the other wants brown and cream. I finished the snowflake pair yesterday:

I knit it from the wrist up, with thumb gussets. I improvised the patterns using charts from The Complete Book of Traditional Fair Isle Knitting by Sheila McGregor, a wonderful resource if you can find a copy! (Link leads to a book with a slightly different title, but I think it’s a reprint of the book I have)

Not my greatest achievement, but I think they will do.

    Ahh, beautiful mittens! I’ve been wanting to make a pair similar to that for a while now. However, I’ve knit two pairs of mittens for myself so far and promptly lost both. I’m hesitant to knit more!
