This week’s drop in temperature, sent us searching for hats, scarves and gloves. We have a big collection for the children to choose from, but BL could find no gloves to fit her. Hmm. At the same time, I remembered that The Children’s Year November Craft Along project is mittens.
Over the summer I have not joined in, so the mittens seemed a good way to get going with the craft along again. The pattern is very easy. I knitted these using merino wool from my stash. I added the white pompoms (in Patons snowflake) so that once the snow has thawed, BL still has a reminder of the snow.
The mittens work well in the snow, she tells me.
Snow is still with us.
No fresh snow today, but it is too cold to thaw. It is a lovely crunch underfoot. We read Ollie’s Ski Trip (We love the Mini Editions) today, which sparked some talk about Mrs Thaw. Judging by the forecast, it may be a few days before she arrives to tidy up.
In the meantime….
