warm hands

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.

Thanks so much for the shout-out - its much appreciated! Unfortunately we're not doing the Creativ Festival this year - we did it last year and it was incredible, but Amy and I both live in Ottawa so its tricky to commute. I look forward to getting those fab mittens though. Hey, attach your name and number when you drop them off, and we'll enter you into our draw to end all draws. Thanks again!
