Michigan Morning Mitts

It's finally getting cold enough to wear knitted goods. I'm so excited!

I love these little mitts. I've worn them twice now, once for a country drive/pumpking patch outing, and once to a bonfire. They've kept my hands perfectly warm both times. The pattern is a simple K2P1 rib. This was my first attempt at a thumb gusset rather than just a hole for the thumb, and I think I did a pretty good job. The yarn is Australian merino, so very soft. And it's superwash!

Those are so cute! Despite my distaste for cold weather, I'm a little jealous that I don't have anywhere to where something like them. Also I'm jealous that I don't have teeny tiny pumpkins.

They are GORGEOUS! Love them. I'm hoping to cast on for my first pair of fingerless mitts soon!
