    Hmm...this reminds me that I have yet to knit any of my handspun. It just all sits in a basket looking at me. Lovely golds you have there; just what I need to get me inspired.

    Molly

    Gorgeous! What a smart idea! I have been avoiding the Bitchin' Mittens craze, but you're tempting me horribly...

    Leanne

    I don't think it would be humanly possible to get any more bitchin' than that. I am humbled by your bitchinness.

    Cookie

    I am not much of a yellow/gold person when it comes to knitting, but I love that yarn and I adore those frickin' bitchin' mittens.

    Well done, Norma!

    LaurieM

    I really like yellow on a grey day. And it sounds to be that the yarn knew what it wanted to be.

    jodi

    Dude. You put forward a pretty good argument for their bitchinness, but they were totally bitchin already, no question. And that's a fantastic photo.

    Scout

    Oh I love them!!!

    Lauren

    What a beautiful color, and gorgeous sunflowers to match.

    sandy

    Those bitchin' fingerless mitts will come in handy on those cold fall mornings, when you are not quite ready to don mittens and still need to use the fingers.
    I'm loving the sunshiney color.
    And your butt. Oddly enough, it made me laugh aloud, startling the rest of the family.

    Lorette

    Bitchin' indeed. Those will really cheer you up when the skies are all cloudy and gray.

    Theresa

    There's no garment so lovely as one that comes from your own handspun. And a color like that will keep you warm even on the most grey days in Vermont!

    jillian

    You are SO right. I think the fact that it is handspun stash is the most bitchin' part! They are gorgeous and I love the color.

    Jessie

    Yay for beautiful FOs and good-sport husbands.

    Zonda

    Love those!! The pictures are just fab! :)

    moiraeknittoo

    Ooo la la! Those are fantastic! You should see me here at my keyboard - I'm doing a fair approximation of the "I'm not worthy!" thing you've got going on there in the first pic. *G* They're lovely, Miss N!

    Julie

    Love the shot with the sunflower! Great idea. And what a good hubby you have - imagine a man willing to take a butt shot!

    Paul

    LOVE the color! LOVE the yarn! LOVE the finished fingerless mitts!

    AWESOME!!!

    Teri P

    Aren't you the clever one? Yes, they are very very pretty! Nice pics, too.

    Vicki

    Wow, Norma, those are so NICE -- and bitchin', too! Fabulous with the sunflowers!

    regina

    Norma, these are truly bitchin'. And that photo: the colors, the composition, the pose -- whoa.

    Dave Daniels

    OK,I was all set to go with a nice and gracious post until I saw the Famous Butt Shot at the end. Not what I was expecting. I thought maybe a photo of Mr. D...
    Truly bitchin' mittens, and I love the photography.

    gale (she shoots sheep shots)

    what about # 11: bitchin' photos showing the mitts. Love everything about this post, including the surprise end(ing)!

    cari

    gorgeous photos, m'dear. and yes, that yellow/gold color is quite purty. I must admit, the first photo looks like a really beautiful crime-scene shot. You know...bridesmaid with cold hands is shot from behind on her way down the aisle at an outdoor wedding... Or maybe I just need to get out of the house more.

    Manise

    I love the " I bow down to your royal highness. May my bitchin' mittens be worthy" pose. Love the half-mittens.The color is so vibrant and sunflowery. Nice job!

    Kathleen

    Perhaps I should cease feverishing knitting my replacement mitten and let the real winners win?? (story regarding the replacement mitten to appear one day soon at my blog)

    Norma, your fingerless, handspun, stash busting, hand-dyed, gold/yellow, bitchin' mittens are beautiful!

    NORA

    Love the colour! Well done (dyed).

    Carole

    Fantastic! And so HOT, Norma.

    kmkat

    I am totally not a gold or yellow kinda person, but those mitts with the flowers are to die for! Great mitts, great photos!

    Lee Ann

    How I do love you. The bow to the lawn god is particularly lovely :-)

    Lynn

    LOVE these wrist warmers! I tried to make a pair, finished one and promptly ripped it out. These came out nice!

    Julie

    Those are some bitchin' mittens for sure!

    Debi

    Coolest mitt pic. EVER! Well done Norma!

    Kathy

    Hey - those match my old bathroom! Great color :-)

    Kristen

    Yes, pretty!

    She who doth (usually) find yellow most odious

    PS If I had that ass in front of me, I'd likely photograph it too! Hubba, hubba!

    Lucia

    Totally bitchin'. And I speak as a non-fan of yellow. Those are great.

    I signed up for bitchin' mittens, figuring I'd be struck with inspiration at some point, but no clonk upside the head yet. Deadline, schmeadline -- at some point inspiration will strike, and there's just no point in rushing it. (Prize, schmize -- I haven't won anything in a cat's age.)

    Diane E.

    Love the yellow,,, we may need mittens sooner than we think this year. Brave chick in spandex!

    jessica~

    He took a picutre of your butt! That's great!!

    Those mittens are awsome! I love the color and the brightness. Great photographs :)

    Laurie

    That was an inspirational color combination. The the mittens are beautiful! I think it's a color that will keep you warm, in addition to keeping you warm.

    I love my mittlets. I like the way they look, and I like the utility.

    Now I need to get up off my a** and do something with my handspun. Eh?

    margene

    Me thinks she doeth protest too much;-) Yes, they are TOTALLY Bitchin'!

    Kim

    Uhhuh, yeah...hubby was a good sport alright. HA!

    GREAT mitten shot, woman. So artistic. Very cool. A splash of curls--love it. And the mitts are gorgeous.
    xoxo

    Kelly

    Your fingerless mitts are beautiful! Great job!

    Rachel H

    Thanks, Cari. Now I can't look at the first pic without thinking of CSI.

    Great mitts. And how cool to use your own handspun/handdyed stuff. Makes me wanna spin something.

    claudia

    That is a great picture, yoga queen.

    KT

    That color is wonderful. It reminds me of Amber-liquid/solid, glowing. It will also match beautiful fall leaves. Good for you for sticking to your guns and getting Exactly what you want. Truly Bitchin'. Jeff Spicoli has nothing on you, man. Way.

    Beverly

    I am not usually fond of yellow/orange/gold , but when you added your sunflowers to the photo...that made me swooooon! Now I'm kicking myself for failure to do any gardening whatsoever this year.

    B.

    So glad you kept your pants on.

    Judy

    Super picture. Sort of makes me wonder what else was going on there in the grass.

    julia fc

    Hadnspun makes anything bitchin'. Congrats.
