Black Friday Mittens

December 12, 2014

Last year for Christmas, I received the wonderful book Vettlingar frá Vorsabæ, and decided to make some mittens for Siggi, called Stubbur. I tried using some worsted yarn that i had bought at a local sheep farm, but they were too big. (I did use the finished one to clean snow off my car last winter while they were still in my knitting bag).

The day before Thanksgiving, we had snow, and had not yet gotten all the winter things for the kids, so Siggi had no mittens to wear in the snow. These were all done except the sewing the tops up and weaving the ends in (the part I always procrastinate on). So I finished them up in the car on the way to the record store on Black Friday. We always use that day to support local stores, including the record store.

I did make him a pair last year, with Brown Sheep Naturespun instead.
