With the snow a foot or more deep, and the temperatures below 0ºF (and I won’t even discuss wind chills), we are all rather stuck inside.  I love seasons, I don’t mind snow and I even don’t mind the cold.  But this winter can’t end soon enough.  I’m ready for sun and the great outdoors.

The mitts are cute, and surprisingly fast.  I bought a pair of circular sock needles- size 4 and I am pretty shocked at how easy they make this.  No DPN’s needed.  I’m already a little less than half way through the first glove on day one.  And it’s such a pretty pattern.

And since winter doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, gloves are good.
