The Beer Mitts* are done - finally and after taking them apart four times to completely rewrite the pattern. I'm no pattern genius, either, but these were just out-of-this-world complicated. My version is much more user-friendly for basic knitters like me.



After about twenty photo ops to find just the right angle, the Russian got out his weights. I asked him if all this yarn was challenging his masculinity. But alas... his idea was a simpler one: take every opportunity you can to show off your muscle mass. ;)

Nicely and patiently done Allie.

I half expected the mitt to have beer in it. Wowee! I'd rather see your Russians mighty muscle mass! Three cheers for both of you.

hugs,
Pam i am :D

Beautiful! Jim wants a pair for when he works in his office, which is located in the basement. It gets pretty cold down there when the wood stove is going.

LOL! Don't you love how men just make everything manly? Very nice mitts! I love the way they turned out. :) What yarn is that? It's a lovely color.

I think even Tom (who made me promise to NEVER make him any clothes before we were married) might like these. I am in awe of your mad knitting skills!

Lovies to you, friend!

They looks great. Sorry I've been away so long. School is getting the best of me.

I imagine cold hands are not picky about color or pattern in your neck of the woods. Warm is warm!

Beautiful mitts, Allison. Someday... :)
