Date Started: April 23, 2007

I can't tell you how excited I am that these are done. While knitting the second glove, the pattern started to overwhelm me and I was just dragging. But eventually I snapped out of it and pushed myself to finish. All the fab Fall knits in my queue might of had something to do with my motivation.
I really do love these mitts. I especially adore how the left mitt is a mirror image of the right one. If you decide to knit these, simply substitute k2tog for k2tog tbl when flipping the chart. It took me a while to figure out that one.
I also really love the Cherry Blossom sock yarn from Sundara. This yarn has been a favorite of mine since I got it a couple of years ago and I've been saving it for just the right project. I think the Mermaid Gloves were a perfect choice.
Here are some more pics from my watery photoshoot (It consisted of me crouched in my parents' jetted tub fully clothed, while my brother stood above me taking pictures of my hands. What we wont do for our blogs, eh?):
