Fabulous Fair Isle! Adelia Mittens

DSC_1737-1


Pattern: Adelia Mitts

Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Cashmere Sock in Sand and Spruce

Needles: 3.25 (US 3)

Mods: None.

Notes: Hooray for mittens! These are the softest pair of mittens I've ever worn. They are part of the TFA January KAL, and I think the last of my KAL FOs, even though I also wanted to knit the matching cowl. I love these mittens- stranded mittens are perfect for extra warmth, and they are sooo soft. Did I mention the soft?! Soft. Anyway. I digress.

I also have some bump photos! Because hey, mittens look good on a baby bump, I think. I'm also pleased that there are lots of cool textured buildings around our new place, so it's given me lots of neat places to plan for future FO shots.
