My Big Fat Mittens

 To go with my Big Fat Hat and Scarf:
Yarn:   Rowan Big Wool, in Black.
Pattern:  Wool-Ease Mittens by Stephanie Taylor.
Needles:  US #10 dpns

Comments:  Again, it's Big Wool.  Plump, warm, soft, and wonderful Rowan yarn.  This was fun to knit. Somehow, knitting black in this gauge isn't nearly as blinding as knitting black sock yarn!

And a visit to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum made me realize that mittens will soon be in order:
A few of the trees were showing their colors this week.  The next two weeks are expected to be glorious!
The hedges.  We need rain, folks!
