I was hoping to have two new baby quilts finished this week. The tops were done, the batting was chosen, I had time set aside... And then I wound up in Urgent Care covered in red welts. Twice. Whatever shot they gave me on my second visit worked wonders and I can move my hands again. (Look -- typing!)
So instead of pretty blue baby quilts you get to see the mittens that I finished last week. I was going to wait until I had a few more pairs done to post pictures, but this will work.
They're destined for the annual mitten tree at the public library. The yarn I used for the center pair is left from a pair of fingerless mitts I knit for myself back in 2008. The other two pairs are from a skein of Red Heart Strata that I bought at an estate sale for fifty cents in (maybe) 2009.
It feels good to use up really old yarn, doesn't it?
