Fried Chicken Mittens

Every person should have a pair of these! And if you live here in the middle of the Canadian prairies where the temperature has been a balmy -25 just about every day, then you definitely need to add these to your queue!

I had to share this free pattern  (if you are on Ravelry) with you. I love how these are constructed. Very easy to knit, and a great shape. I also got a real kick out of the cartoon of the different thumb options one has to chose from when knitting mittens. So funny!

I happen to have issues with thumbs. I always leave them till last when I'm knitting. Maybe this time I'll be more tempted to finish them off if they do indeed end up looking like fried chicken!



And... well, sorry about missing a whole week of blogging last week. We had company and christmas parties and so on and the blog got forgotten. But I'm back on track now (or at least until the next time).

Cheers, and happy mitten knitting!
