KNIT MITT KIT SWAP AND FINISHED MITTENS

The first picture is of my kit that I received from Vicki for the KMKS. It contained a beautiful felted bag made by Vicki, Cherry Tree Hill Sock Yarn and mitten pattern, Brittany dpn's, three packs of Orbit gum, and a big bag of Haribo Gummi Bears. Notice that one pack of gum and the gummy bears are missing!! Hubby has the gum and I ate the gummy bears!

This next picture is of the mittens I made for Maggie's friend, Lauren. I used a generic mitten pattern from Yellow Dog Knitting and Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Heilo together. We just had terrible below zero weather and it is starting to warm up some. I guess from Friday sometime to Tuesday we had 82 hours of below zero temps! I should have had these done for Lauren before all that cold hit us..but my surgery knocked me on my arse. I hope she likes her mittens!

The sun is shining today and it looks so beautiful outside! The cold is a bit more bearable. I plan to start on a pair of socks for myself. I will be using some STR that I bought around Thanksgiving. Okay, so I need to go rest. It is amazing how the smallest task makes me tired. Happy knitting!!

Great mittens! Nice package, too. Love that bag. Glad you are feeling better and getting around (somewhat!). We've had it really cold here, too. No real snow at all this winter, but it's in the forecast for Monday. I can handle a bit of snow if it would just not be so cold!
