Last week Audrey asked for mittens attached with a string so she won’t lose them. Lucky for her I was at a point in my WIPs where I wanted to throw them out the window. I made Thick and Quick Álafosslopi Mittens from Sand & Sky Creations. The yarn is 3 ply chunky Polypay from Long Way Homestead. Audrey dyed the yarn with Kool Aid last March.
These mittens will be great for playing in the snow. They are knit at a very tight gauge (you know, the kind that makes your hands hurt a little bit). The yarn feels like the sort of yarn Ma Ingalls would use to make mittens for Laura: not super soft, but will stand up to anything.
What do you knit when you need a break from your current projects?
