last posting about mitts for a while, maybe

We have the charming Emily W. modeling the almost completed String of Pearl mitts. These mitts will be paired with a crochet evening bag that I teach in the crochet workshop, but I forgot to take a picture of it.
Today I'll take the pattern for the mitts into the store. After 45 minutes or so in Kinko's last night (ugh), they're ready. Many thanks to Margaret for her encouragement and advice on pattern logistics!
Here's my favorite little corner of Cozy in Durham, the yarn nook. You can see some of the samples we have hanging up, while others are displayed with the yarn they're knitted with.

The Bling Bling mitts came out great, and they coordinate with Margaret's Bling Bling purse. Don't they make a lovely set for an evening out? We think so, too.

oooh, i like the bling bling mitts! i imagine that's a 2 ball project?

I'm happy to report that the mitts were made with only one ball of Bling Bling. This really surprised me, but it worked out great. There was even some left over, and I could have made the cuffs a little longer.

Hey Cynthia! I was very impressed to see you and your friend running with so much energy this morning. Emily told me that you got the pattern and spent some time hanging out in the store yesterday. I hope you like the mitts--did you see mine this morning?!
Can you come knit with our little group some Tuesday night? It would be fun to have you-
