I love making mittens.
My favourite type to make would have to be stranded-knit colourwork mittens, and luckily, when my friend bid on my offered custom-knit mitten coupon at a silent auction for our football team, she thought that just that sort of thing would be the right sort of mittens.
My friend loves music, and sings in the Kokopelli choir here in town, so she chose elements for her mittens that are part of her musical life.
And here, (thanks to the general lack of sunlight for photo-taking I had to squish right in next to the window to get these), are the finished mittens which are ready to hand to her when I see her next week:
So, now to get started on Christmas gifts...
