Since the recipient of these mittens is a man who works outdoors, I’ve chosen some nice dark colors in the hope that the mittens will keep looking smart with wear. I picked up both the wool and the yarn the last time I was out to Belfast Mini Mills. It is REALLY hard to come from that store without adopting quite a lot of their gorgeous fiber and yarn!
I’m making the pattern up as I go along to match up with the sketch of his hand size so that they will fit his hands like a glove … er, mitten, I guess in this case. 😀
What kind of crafty things are you up to, this fine Wednesday? Are you knitting warm woolly things to fend off the cold as well? Do tell!
