Bella's Mitts

More mitts! I have knit many pairs this year, but none for myself just yet. I need to though and soon! These cute almost-to-the-elbow length mitts were for my buddy Andrea. We came to be great friends about 9 years ago when we were both expecting babies. Since then, we have had two more pregnancies together! Makes it very easy to remember birthdays and ages :)

Anyways, one of the neat things about our friendship is that we share the same birthday, although 6 years apart. For many years, we always went out together to having a mini celebration. This year, on the 18th, she turned 40 :) Her family had a beautiful surprise party for her which we were so happy to attend. I wanted to make something special and it had to be quick as I only found out about the party a few days before hand. So, Bella's Mitts won! I used almost two whole hanks of Araucania Magallanes in the "Baffin Island" colorway and it took me two evenings to knit the mitts. A really warm, quick knit and I highly recommend this easy pattern. I wish I had better pictures but it has been very overcast and snowy :)
