Here in Arkansas we’re finally getting cool mornings, though the afternoons are still warming up nicely. Over the weekend my daughter went out to get the newspaper and had to bundle in pants and a fleece jacket, then she didn’t want to take her hands out of her pockets to pick it up!
So I guess it must be time to start thinking about mittens. These Wynter Mitts by Susan Mills for Classic Elite Yarns are bigger than would fit the girl, but they’re adorable, and I just might have to knit some for myself and make a wee version for her. The bold chevron and yellow and black coloring of course bring Charlie Brown to mind, but they’d be bold and beautiful in whatever two colors you choose. You could even use two shades of the same color (the girl would love purple!) or just work them solid for a super fast project that will have your hands warm in no time.
Are you knitting for cold weather already? I’d love to know what’s on the needles.
