I promised my friend Linda that I would knit her a pair of mittens if she bought a tort doe from me. She bought the tort doe, so I made the mittens. I think they turned out rather nice.
These are based on the mittens I made and donated to the 2015 National Dutch Show fund. I changed some of the motifs, added Linda’s name, and altered the cuff to be a ribbed/striped cuff instead of the lace and hemmed edge cuff of the previous pair.
They took me a long time to finish and for no really good reason. Now that they are, I think I will enter them in the Oregon State Fair. I’m missing the Indiana State Fair so much. And my friends. My family. I really want to go home.
