I finished my 3rd (and probably final) pair of mittens for NaKniMitMo last week. I had originally planned on doing the Postwar Mittens from Twist Collective as my next pair but I was a little colorwork-ed out, you know?
So I went stash diving and found 3 skeins of Cascade 220 just hanging around. I bought those skeins ages ago with the intention of knitting something using all 3 colors but I never knew what it would be.
Enter the Furrow Mittens – another wonderful design by Kirsten at Through The Loops.
Beautiful and warm and functional. Fast to knit and entertaining, too. Everything a mitten should be.
They are beautiful – love the colors
They look great Carole! Such fun and colors!
Love the cuffs! Nice stash busting too.
Very nice. I queued these and bought the pattern over the weekend. They look like fun.
Very nice – great colors.
Lovely! I’m so inspired by these beautiful mittens, I just went and bought the pattern! Can’t wait to make these and Bella’s Mittens for myself!!
Fun colors! Kirsten’s mitten patterns are just the best!

Love them! I’m dragging through a pair of very boring mittens. If I’d chosen a fun pattern like you did, I bet they’d be done by now.
Lovely mittens. The colors are beautiful together.
They look warm and very lovely. 🙂 Perfect for all this snow we have here.
I like how the brighter red pops in the cuff. Nice work.
Oh I really like them. The stitch pattern on the cuffs really shows off the three colors.

Congratulations on your third pair. Love the cuff design!

Great colors! Love the pattern. (By the way, did you know the next Piecework is going to be all about reenactments?)
Nice colors in these mittens. I really love the cuffs.
Those colors are great together! The cuffs are just fab. I want to make these just for those cuffs.
I’ve been eyeing that same pattern at Twist. Every time I click through, I stop at the Post War mittens.
Oh, aren’t those cute?! You really are inspirational!
Rather Hogwarts(ish). Very cute!
Great mittens and I love the color combo.
Gryffindor mittens! Love them!

happy colors! they look warm before they are on! thanks for the “link”, too! We are at 70 plus degrees(F) today, but I cast on another hat anyway, so there!
what cool cuffs on those.
and yeah, colorwork is great fun, but eventually one has enough 🙂
Those are great! I love the star stitch cuffs!
Perfect! The cuffs are so cute!
Very cool. I really like the cuff on those.
Very nice! I will be lucky to get one pair done, but I have been knitting other things.
Very pretty! I love the colors and the mattress ticking stripe!
I really love the color combination on the mittens. just lovely!
Awesome – Charlie Brown mittens! ;o)
Good lookin’ mittens! Love the cuffs.
Isn’t it great when you find the perfect yarn in your stash! Although that does re-enforce buying yarn that ” I just know I’ll use someday” !Lovely colors & pattern!
Robin in VA says
They are very beautiful!! Love the cuff stitch!
Very cute, Carol!
The colors us used in these mittens go very nicely together. You make everything looks so easy. I did post some photos of my previous weekend when we had record breaking temps. California winters can at times be as hot as our summers, but the sun is a little kinder. Think of the warm weather to come and perhaps take a look at the photos on my blog. I posted a couple of color filled flower photos.
Really like the cuffs 🙂
I love them! I haven’t knit any mittens — can you believe it — need to and maybe these — really cute!
