A Tale of Two Squirrels
this post, wore through the thumb about a month ago, I'm still planning to mend them, but it seemed like a good sign that it was time to make a new pair. One of the local fiber shops has a super fun Boxing Day sale every year where you can pick a box (large or small) and get a percent off of everything you can stuff inside it. And this year I went a little crazy. I mostly got roving, because I was completely out, but I also grabbed the yarn for these mittens. It was some random wool, that you bought by the ounce, and now, after using it, I think it was meant for crewel work. The colors are lovely, but it was a pain to knit with because the yarn was so springy keeping gauge was next to impossible. So all I can say there is thank the Lord for blocking!
