Safe Return Mittens Finale

The lonely mitten from last week now has a mate!

Project: Safe Return Mittens
Pattern: Safe Return Mittens by Robin Hansen, Knitting Traditions Winter 2011
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool
Yardage:  odd balls from assorted projects
Needles: Size 6 and 8
Cast on: September 16, 2011

Cast off: September 27, 2011
Cost: less than $5
Notes: The pattern was written for right hand, not a word about the left hand. It wasn't hard to figure it out but I wish there was recognition for my other hand.

I know how much everyone has missed the little Rascal, click on the picture to enjoy your full Rascal experience. This is his regular "sandwiching" pose. I intruded his privacy.

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, Tami's blog, and leave me a comment!

How cute. I used to have a dog that would hide under the cover too. LOVE IT! The mittens are great. It is odd that they didn't make an adjustment for the left hand. Argh! That would totally mess me up.

Excellent mittens! I'm not sure what I'd do if my pattern didn't offer instructions for the other hand -- maybe hide under the cushions?

I'd be completely clueless and probably make 2 right handed mittens before I even thought about it ;) They look great

I didn't even realize there was a little pup under there! Super cute - I fostered a beagle last year that burrowed. Came in handy in the winter :)
Great mittens - too funny about the one-handed instructions.

HAhahahaahha I missed the doggie the first time, read everyone's comments and had to go back. Cute!!

I love Knitting Traditions ... such an awesome magazine. Love the mittens, and look forward to the St. Brigid!

I love the mittens and the Rascal. :-)

Are you sure Rascal wasn't a cat in a former life? :)

Glad to see two mittens - they are excellent.

Keri said...

Lovely mittens and pairs are always good.

When Rascal comes out of the sandwich, he is like a toasty little bullet from Quizno's!

The mittens are very classy looking! The color is perfect.
