Whipped up these side-cabled fingerless mittens for Brett's mom, Linda, this week...perfect timing since his family all came over for dinner and games yesterday.
When I asked Linda what color she'd like, and she said pink, I thought "ugh...girly!" But I sent her a bunch of pics of options for pink that would work with the same pattern I'd done for my mom's, and she came up with Madelinetosh's Cherry pink, which it turns out is not at all a "girly pink", and IS a perfect match for the little bit of pink in her mostly-black winter coat. Seriously, it looked like these mitts were meant to accompany her coat...AND the slight flaws I had with mom's regarding the thumb gusset? Not this time around - they turned out perfect!
