Love

Pattern: NHM #9 from Selbuvotter by Terri Shea
Yarn: Dale of Norway Baby Ull in 5545 and 0020
Needles: US 0 and US 1

These mittens need a better name than NHM #9. Like Too Freaking Gorgeous for Words. Or Could They BE Any More Beautiful. Or Love. Maybe not even the word "Love." Just a little heart shape.

There is one less than perfect aspect to these... the left mitten is slightly bigger than the right. I've had this problem before with stranded mittens. Somehow things change between the first and the second. I soaked and blocked them to even out the stitches and managed to a certain extent to even out the sizes, but the left one is still slightly larger. Oh well. That's the beauty of handmade, isn't it? If nothing else, they make great eye candy.
