Working with lopi

This winter, I decided to knit lopi mittens for my son. I used a pattern I wrote and can be found here but decided to cast on 36 sts instead of 34 and I also made then longer.

If I remember it right I made them longer with one extra round between the patterns. I do need to look at it better sometimes.
The son got them and they felt pretty warm when he went to a walk with the dog. (Do you see all the W?) He did not get cold on his hands during the winter after he got them.

Talking about the dog, I took out all my left over plötulopi and knitted a blanket for her (girl dog). She likes to lie on it. I have the blanket in a window that goes down to the floor and there she lies and monitors what happens outside.
