I've always thought that making mittens with fingers would be such a picky job that I've always stayed far away and just stuck to gloves and fingerless gloves.
Wouldn't you know it my oldest daughter asked for a pair of red gloves for the cold morning commute to work.
I really didn't want to do it.
Then again, she rarely asks for anything.
I was hoping she would forget that she wanted these gloves.
Well, she didn't.
Last hike up Dog Mountain she said she was secretly hoping that the gloves would be ready.
I guess she didn't forget.
So of course I didn't want to disappoint her and therapy later would cost more than the mittens, so.....I took the plunge, acted mature and dug right in.
As you can see I finished them in no time and actually enjoyed how well they were turning out, especially when my son thought I was a genius.
I gave them to her and she loved them!
Totally worth it!!!
