Mitten Finish

I give you the ShiBui Mittens....
Although it looks as though the thumbs are too small, they are in fact good sized.  The gusset is started in the SUMMER CAMP variegated color way and finished in navy so that creates the illusion. 

I was inspired by Dee who knits some of her socks with a solid cuff and heel and toe. 
Thanks Dee! 

There is a Ravelry community that collects mittens for kids in need and this pair is going along with others. 
I wanted them BIG because some kids are built bigger and need warm hands as well.  
The yarn was pretty had had some nice give to it. 
Do you think I should tag the mittens with a hand wash sign? 
 My Columbine are blooming.  Someone told me they are the symbol of the Holy Spirit.  Love that. 
Baby Fezzik has the laundry gene....

Happy Friday blog pals!

Fun mittens Kathy! And a great idea making some larger...for bigger kids. Fezzik is so photogenic - he is gorgeous. Our columbine are blooming now too -- just noticed them the other evening. Enjoy the holiday weekend!

Don't they all have the laundry gene?
I love the mittens. There is definitely an illusion with the thumbs. The colors are so pretty.

Someone is going to love those mittens!
I see your little helper is into doing laundry. There is nothing better than a warm basket right out of the dryer for a cat nap.

I love Fezziks wispy hairs :) Too cute! Now can you teach him to do the laundry?? love your mittens!

Yes, you should put a tag on the wool mittens to hand wash them or they'll get tossed in the machine and become baby mittens. Those are great and so nice of you to donate them! Love little BIG Fezzick! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Nice job on the mittens! Some child is going to LOVE them.

Columbines are one of my favorites; it fact the are the only perennials I have planted at my place.

Fezzik - what a guy! He's found a comfy spot!!

Beautiful mittens and gorgeous Columbine! Fezzik in the laundry (warm I assume)is too cute. All discerning pups and kitties love the warm laundry!
