Let me explain. It’s cold here. It’s February. I’ve been thinking for the last few months about lining these mittens because by the time I get home from school with the kids I can’t feel my fingers. My thoughts would wander to the stash and the appropriate yarn for the job. I haven’t done a darn thing about it.
So here’s the deal. I was in the dollar store picking up goodies for my daughter’s 7th birthday party and I came across some cheap & ugly one-size-fits-all mittens. They’re my new liners. As a knitter, I hate to admit this, but they work well. I was working on the driveway today & my hands were so warm they were sweating. Super duper, and only a small amount of shame.
