Utica Mitts

My hands are always first to suffer from cold in winter. And it doesn't even have to be really cold.
I can barely feel them in the morning driving to work while holding on to a ice cold weel.
Since it's a rather short drive, no point to turn on the heater. Also I am not a fan of walking with hands in my pockets.
I was contemplating to do something about it when the opportunity presented itself in a form of test knit for Melissa Schaschwary. It was a sign!
So here they are, my new mitts. Ready to protect my sensitive skin and to make others roll their eyes (here it is not that common to see a person wearing mitts or gloves).

My version of pullover "Berenice" by Julie Hoover:

Beautiful and easy-to-remember lace pattern with a just enough cables to make me like it even more (yes, I love cables and that's pretty obvious - just take a look on my projects' page).
My DD loved the pullover very much, mostly because of the batwing sleeves.
She couldn’t stop putting hands on her waist during the photo shoot :)
