All Hallow's Eve

The frost is on the pumpkin this All Hallow's Eve. And on the decorative corn. And on the Spruce mittens inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Around "Mittful of Mittens" chapter.

The mittens were knit in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Superwash (gospel green, which looks like teal) and Lion Brand Alpaka (natural and light brown) on Susan Bates aluminum size 8 dpn's.

They were great fun to knit; and, as always in my projects, I had a learning curve. I had never knit a pair of mittens before! The stranded work was fun and the afterthought thumb idea is ingenious!

Good go on the mitts - they look like they are just waiting for a snowy day .... to go play.
