Today’s prompt is “mittens,” which is a golden opportunity for me to show off some of Mary’s handiwork. She is a knitter par excellence, and also crochets. She started the Charity Knitters and Crocheters group at church twelve years ago and is still active, and she was in charge of workshops for the North Georgia Knitting Guild until this year.
This is her most recent creation (below).
Now that we live in the South, she doesn’t wear full mittens. Instead, she wears fingerless mittens, which keep the hands warm while allowing use of the fingers.
Mary says she never met a mitten pattern she didn’t like. This is a book I got her for Christmas. Okay, she told me what to get.
She wanted to share a public service announcement: There’s no bad weather, only bad clothes for it. Be sure to bundle up when it’s cold out.
