Owl Mittens

Motivated by Millard's sweater, here is a pair of mittens I knit in the spring for my partners niece, mine are stranded and of course made from Drops Alpaca (I continue my love affair with alpaca) lol.

She is going to love them, they are really cute. I love the owl on the thumb too. Very nice job.

I know it will sound corny, but those mittens are a HOOT.

lol, the actual name is "Moody Owls", I did another pair from a different pattern and they had the word "Hoot" on them but I left it out, there also was a crown on the owl, that was dropped as well.

Okay, those are brilliant! Love the graphic, love the salt and pepper in the palm and LOVE the owl on the thumb. Great work!

I agree; the owl on the thumb is brilliant!

Gorgeous mittens, Dennis. How many stitches did you use for a child's mitt?

Hi Ron...These are ladies sm/med with 80 sts, with your knitting prowess, I am sure you could down size them....I bought the pattern on "Ravelry"

Those mittens are awesome Dennis!!! I'm glad owls are making a comeback. The little owl on the thumb was my favorite part too!

Those are extremely cute. I have a pattern for mitten - intended for a child - that has a cable shaped owl on the backs. It was given to me by a dear friend who sized them for an adult. I keep meaning to get a pair knit but never seem to get it done.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Beautiful, masterful job, Dennis! Your partner's niece will love them. I'm going to have to check out alpaca yarn and see what it's like to work with.
