I have a friend who lives in the big city. She takes transit a lot, and is in need of some warm woolies to keep her toasty between subways - especially this year.
She's the intended recipient of the colourwork hat I test knitted a few months ago.
She's such a lovely friend, and it's such a lovely hat, that I decided a pair of matching mitts were well deserved....
.... well - it will be a pair of mitts eventually. The second one has been cast on. I meant to work on it at lunch, but I left my knitting bag at home! Not a good thing when Christmas is only a week away!!!
