Snowball Ready

Remember way back on January 20th when I started this pair of mittens? Forgot all about them, hadn't you? Well, they've been nagging at me from on top of my dresser for the past two weeks. Not the knitting part--I finished that right away. But sewing up the seams...sigh...I hate sewing seams.

Adding to the problem...this yarn is Magico and changes color, so the seam went from pink to yellow to green to blue to purple to brown and back to pink. I'm sure someone more skilled at sewing seams would have no problem with that, but I ended up with this big, pink scar down the sides of my mittens. What else could I do but tear it out and start over? So I sewed each section with matching yarn. Boring. Tedious. Not my idea of fun.

But they're done! I did it! And now I have mittens to wear with my brown coat! I'm happy.

Edited to add: The pattern I used can be found right here.

They do look great though, so worth that extra time. You do very nice work!
