Today me and my boyfriend celebrate our 5th anniversary. Last winter, when I was knitting lots of colored mittens, my boyfriend said that it would be cool if he had habanero mittens. I started designing them then, but forgot about it when spring came. Now I started again, when I got the idea that I could make them for our anniversary.
It wasn't quite as easy to design them as I had thought, especially since I first planned using three colors. I tried out different options, knitted and ripped, until I was satisfied. I used two colors in the colored knitting, and put some green in the cuff and for the stems.
