I'm Knittin' Mittens!

Since I became a knitter, I have wanted a pair of warm, hand knit mittens. The sticking point has been that my coat is a leather-suit-coat-lookin' thing that didn't really suit the obviously hand knit, woolly look I was craving in a mitten. Last month, I bought a proper winter coat that is perfect for wearing with hand knit, woolly mittens. I bought myself a pair of gloves that I knew I would not like, as motivation to cast on some of my dream mittens sooner rather than later. They have bobbles, which do not appeal to me, and they cost $5, so they are falling apart at a rapid pace...

Tonight, I'm casting on some mittens. Let it snow!

I love the part about buying gloves you knew you wouldn't like as motivation to knit your own! I buy Halloween candy that I don't like so I'm not tempted by it, but I never thought of buying a garment I didn't like. funny.
