All knitting on my WIP's came to a screeching halt due to having a sudden mitten emergency on my hands. (oops *sorry* couldn't resist!) As is often the case with things that come in pairs, Thing One became separated from Thing Two on several occasions. Which translated into mitten language meant that the little guy had 3 lefties but no righties to be found. Personally, I blame this sad state of affairs on mischievous household sprites ;) Luckily for the little guy, my knitting skills are better than my organizational ones.
I am calling these his Arctic Blast mittens because they are super toasty warm. Love the waffle stitch and the unexpected pop of red. I modified this pattern to fit his hands with a little room to grow into. Hopefully, those darn sprites will resist stealing these for a few years yet. We had chilly cold temps in the single digits here and no power for several hours yesterday, so it was a great day to hide out in bed and knit mittens!
p.s. Mittens are very hard to photograph. I almost caused myself an injury while taking the picture for my new header :)
