My No-More-Humdrum-Mittens Round 2 Mittens are complete

So, these are them. :) It's just a basic mitten pattern.....before the embroidery was on them, my pals at my Stitch and Bitch Group affectionately called them "Poopie Mittens" LOL Well guess what? They must have made GREAT fertilizer because there are some GAWGEOUS flowers sprouting up on them! hehehe

Personally, I love the color combo but i am worried that my partner won't. I think they look kinda retro.

I've never really done any embroidery before. The Orange flower and the blue and white flower are crocheted circles that are attached with lazy daisies. The blue and orange flower is just free form lazy daisies and the leaves are free form.....I guess you call it satin stitch, and then there are some tiny flowers made out of french knots.


  1. You did a great job with the embroidery. Metro schmetro they are are show stoppers and when wore people will stop and admire.

  2. Thank you for the fabby mittens! They're a perfect fit and just the right weight for spring. And I love all the other goodies - I am one spoiled swapper!

  3. Oh - these are incredibly beautiful. So fun to see some knitters actually doing embroidery. Congratulations.

  4. And they even look better in person!
