Mitts for Chris and Fred
Green Thumb by Diana Foss using Bendigo Luxury DK 100% wool for this pair of mitts. Chris has had trouble with cold hands (but has a very warm heart) :). I took a break from sock knitting to make these for him and am happy to say he likes them. The H is for his surname. When Fred saw them, he knew he wanted a pair for flying this winter so I started them before the Olympic KAL and before getting back to the socks for February.
This is an easy pattern that is interesting enough to avoid boredom and fits many size hands comfortably. These won't count for anything other than to share with friends who love to knit. :) The 2 days and nights I knitted were enjoyable and I was inspired thinking of Debi knitting a pair of socks in half that amount of time. Amazing!
