With the left over yarn from David's hat and scarf and this vest, I made these mittens last night. I like doing the I-cord and will probably use it quite often from now on. At first I thought I would do a more interesting two color pattern, but I need them now and not some time down the road. It was snowing today, and raining and there was a storm in between.
I had to retrieve the lid of our yard waste container. I was wandering up and down the road looking for it, the storm blowing (and giving me a face lift for free) until I found it under the car of one of our neighbors a few houses down the road. Anyway, I'm happy I have warm nice mittens now, which will felt for sure (and that is just fine). Now, I'm going to make myself a hat with these colors, not sure what though. I'm not going to start it tonight.
For Leslie: Since your comment was anonymous and I don't know how to get in touch with you, I'll insert the link for the free pattern here: scarf . But you can easily find it on the side bar, scroll down and there will be Free Patterns in orange and click the Free Patterns underneath. They are not listed seperately. Anyway, have fun knitting!
