There was a hint of fall in the air this morning on my daily walk. I look forward to the days when the weather turns cool and crisp and I can slip on my new tweedy mitered mittens. I loved this quick and satisfying project and am already planning my next pair.

  10. Oh, these are lovely, B. I like that you used a plainer tweedy yarn. I have seen these knit in variegateds countless times, after seeing yours, I am sure I like them better in a more conservative but still stylish yarn.
