...for a special person getting ready to move to 7th grade there next year.
Warmest Mittens pattern from my earlier post in Cascade 220 yarn. Maybe 1/2 a skein of black and less than 1/4 skein of the yellow/gold. After the ribbing I changed colors every 10 rows.
These are pretty fast so finishing them isn't all that impressive. I spend a night making the ribbing/hand part and another night on the thumb and weaving in the ends... total of 4 evenings in front of the tv or watching your favorite youth practice/game.
