I realized last week that it was getting cold and I had no mittens, somehow. So I decided to knit a pair with two balls of leftover Noro (the Gollum-colored part), some of the Fool's first handspun and some KnitPicks Merino in olive green.
I swore off mittens last year, so this was a pretty major decision for me. Plus, it's getting cold again this weekend and I have to cover an outdoor event on Saturday.
Anyway, what I discovered, after knitting a pair of mittens in three days, is that I don't mind mittens at all.
What I hate are dpns.
