Week 4 Winner!
I'm a bit concerned that there are still 10 people who haven't sent their mittens yet. Can you email me and reassure me that all is well? Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With fall just around the corner, what better time for a Mitten Swap! Mittens will be mailed out by October 31st - just in time for the first chill!

They were a lot of fun to knit! Hope my mitten pal likes them. Now on to sign up for Mittens 2.
Have you guys noticed that just when you think you have life neatly organized, something happens and that schedule just totally falls apart? Or is it just me complaining because I hate disorganization? :-) (Um, and don't look at my desk or the house at the moment; you'd never believe the person who said that lives or works there!) In any event, after a number of delays, these suckers are bundled for Monday's mail run.
They're a modified Selburose pattern, but done in Dale's baby wool because the person specifically requested soft wool and she doesn't live in the extreme north; the added thickness of the two-color pattern should be enough. I'll be honest and say that I'm not completely thrilled with them because of some tension issues (my hands are acting up; I can't do better with fine yarn at the moment). They feel great, and I love the pattern, but I think I'll do these again in a heavier hand-wash wool which will make the stitches "hold" their place a little better. In the meantime, I'm hoping the gal who receives these likes them, and doesn't mind an imperfection here or there.
