Yesterday, while knitting on something else, I received a text from Nicole:
It’s a good thing she didn’t ask “Have you ever made mittens?” because I had not but . . I knew I COULD!
By bedtime, I had mittens made.
I’m also making a pair without thumbs, which may be much easier for her to wear. The ones with the thumbs may be a little big and may work better for her next winter. I will send both pairs to Nicole and wait for her to give me suggestions before making more. She can let me know which ones work best and if they need to be smaller or larger and then I’ll make several pairs. Actually, I’m going to make three mittens so if she loses one, she will still have a “pair”. They’re so quick and easy to make and she needs granny made mittens instead of storebought mittens! 🙂
