Well, the purple mittens are finished! YAH! They are the first pair I've ever made. I've been knitting since I was seven (my Gran taught me to knit) and I've knit most everything else except socks (leave that to my sister, Joan) and mittens. There is enough wool left to do another pair as I found out when I weighted the mittens and then the leftover yarn. Digital food scales come in handy for lots of things. Info on the yarn HERE.
I wish every one a Happy Labor Day Weekend! If you are out and about, have a safe trip home. That means you, too, Joan.
