On a chilly day not long ago, Ben sprang it on me.
"I need some mittens. Will you make me some mittens?"
It's knitter's dream come true! A real request for mittens! In the dead of winter! From someone who will actually wear handknits!!
So I knit mittens.
I checked my colors with Ben - he asked for all black, but that's beyond me. I had to add a glintof silver at least. And the stylish and adaptable Cloisonee had just been released, so what a natural thing for me to just knit right into it.
They were quick. Easy. I had some trouble getting gauge with my needles, but otherwise these were a breeze.
I was so excited to hand them to Ben.
"I thought they'd be more like gloves."
