Day 12 of 30

I'm having a lazy day. I did go out grocery shopping this morning, but other than that, I've just been wasting time online and watching the news on TV. I needed that after the past two stress-filled days at work. I work at 4pm tonight but I don't expect any stress, which is good.

I promised you a pic of the finished mittens, so here they are:

LaLa Mittens (November)

Pattern: La La Mittens, by Gina House
Yarn: It was yarn I had in my stash and I lost the label, but I think it was Plymouth Yarn Galway Worsted.
Needles: US 5/3.75 mm
Modifications: I didn't read the abreviation part of the pattern and I realized only after I was almost done with mitten #1 that I didn't do a few things correctly. I didn't mind much anyways.

I'm sorry about the bad pic, Chris took many but navy blue yarn can sometimes be difficult to photograph. The mittens will be my sister's Christmas gift.

Awesome mittens. I need to knit some of those for myself! You know, someday...
