New Pattern: The Nord Mittens of Dwindling Frost

My husband has been playing the video game Skyrim lately, which is a very detailed, medieval-esque, dragons-potions-questing-and-swords game awash in knitter inspiration. Every temple and hall has something that would be beautiful in knit-form. I often knit while he's playing, and find myself staring at the tv, trying to figure out how to make that arch into a cable. 

So, to satiate my arch-into-cable desires, I designed these mittens to look like stone carvings from the game. I just finished the sample for a new cardigan design in Dream in Color Classy, which ohmygosh is the most wonderful yarn I have ever had the pleasure to knit with. I had enough of the main color (Prince William) left over for a mitten design, and luckily, it was the perfect stone color. My husband got to name the mittens: The Nord Mittens of Dwindling Frost: Hands take on 40% less frost damage. 

(Yep, that's my knitted sword.)
