my big ol' meaty mitts

Meaty mitts.
I've been a little stressed out about the fact that I keep getting kick-ass, breath-taking Braxton-Hicks contractions. I know sometimes some women get them early, but it's still a little worrisome. So I need a mindless project to keep me busy and calm. Never underestimate the soothing properties of crochet, which combined with the super-simple, super-easy construction of wristwarmers make for the perfect project for this time. These wristwarmers are chunky and meaty but so squishy and warm. I love this silky wool, though it's a bitcharooni to rip. I'll probably have the second one finished tonight.

The mitt is looking good and your hand doesn't look meaty at all.

The silky wool you are using, is it the Elsebeth Lavold yarn?

Gorgeous mitts, love the colour and the stitch you're using. Lovely.
