Cast-on Sunday night and done this morning, with thanks to Elizabeth Durand for this pattern. A little pair of mittens to fit a child of about six, in Patons Classic Merino Wool. These should keep one little pair of Innu hands a little warmer this winter.
My first thought was to make a matching hat. But did you know that if you donate a newly knit wool baby blanket or child's sweater to the Warm Hands Network you get free admission to the Creativ Festival in Toronto? (Edit Oct 1: Oops! Not true! Sorry!) So now I'm thinking a matching sweater as well as a hat.
Can I start and finish a child's sweater in about 2 weeks? We're about to find out. And we'll see if the second Express Lane sock can be started and finished at the same time.
