Okay, okay… Rob up in Colorado said was was -9°F so I can’t complain too loudly, but when I woke this morning around 4:30 it was 63°F; an hour later it was 58°F, and an hour after that it was 48°F. Oh wow, quick drop.
Last winter some public health pollster came around on the coldest day of the season, without gloves. After a long (l-o-n-g) chat outside (because I don’t bring strangers into my house), we shook hands and I noticed his hands were like ICE. So I gave him my pair of Sock Yarn Mittens.
So This morning, needed to run an errand when the temp got down to 43°F I was grateful for this pair of fingerless mittens that were designed for Knitivity by Linda Jo Park – the Stacked Olives Mittens – knitted with a skein of Phydlbitz Sock in the Cygnus colorway, but it would work with any sock yarn you may have available. And you’ll notice she got a blue ribbon for her work!
These were designed and the pattern provided back in May, just as the weather was plenty warm. I had forgotten about them during the heat of summer. And mind you, it was near 80 just yesterday before the cold front came in, so finding the mittens took some doing!
Sometimes you need full coverage, and sometimes you need to have your fingers free (like pushing buttons at an outdoor ATM or fitting keys into door locks). You can have a copy of the Stacked Olives Mitten FREE with your purchase of my Sockyarn Mittens, and you’ll be set for whatever you need. Plus, these make wonderful liners for heavy winter mittens up in the colder parts of the world!
