Yes, that joke about how I should have chosen the blogger-name "Mitten Mama" is getting another workout this week.
Details: size 3 wooden needles (16" circs, two of 'em) from KnitPicks.
KnitPicks' Swish DK Superwash in black and red (about half of a skein of each.)
Mittens were made to fit a 4-year-old child.
Obviously, his initials are "JG" and no, I haven't actually seen them on him yet.
We got the invitation to the birthday party on Thursday morning. It's now Saturday evening. I knit that pair of mittens in 2 days. I think the first one took about 6 hours and the second one took about 4.5 hours.
