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. ;)
