happiness is orange mittens

If I ever get them finished.

I cast on last night on the ride home and got to about here while dinner was cooking. I didn't knit at all after dinner or this morning. Too tired.

More Lorna's Laces Chunky Swirl in Pumpkin. I'm knitting on US10s and getting a nice and dense 4 spi (recommended gauge is 3 spi). I'm making it up as I go along which explains the rather unusual situation with the thumb. I'll fix it up by picking up and decreasing.

Too bad I didn't feel like knitting more last night. I could have had at least one mitten for the absolutely frigid morning.
