Last winter, after shoveling the driveway for the zillionth time (remember last winter when we had that weird frozen stuff all over?), R requested a pair of mittens to help keep his hands from freezing off. I haven’t knit many mittens – I guess we just aren’t a ‘mitten’ family – but I can’t say no when he requests something specific like that.
So, not only did he get mittens, he got mittens knit from handspun:
I think he likes them. ;o)
Project Details: (Ravelry Page)
Pattern: Basic Men’s Mittens
Yarn: Worsted Weight Handspun in Cranberry Bog purchased at Rhinebeck
Knit: February 2011 (yes, I’m slow with the blogging about the knitting…)
Hope you all have a great weekend – rumor has it we’re getting a dusting of the white stuff tonight, I can’t wait! I’m sick of this brown winter!
