At the beginning of the year I knit up a gaptastic for the shop. I loved it so much, that I decided that I had to knit up another one, for myself. Those mornings standing at the bus stop with the kids in the middle of winter get brutally cold. My thrummed mittens are a staple for standing at the bus stop, along with a trusty hat. Now, I can add this to my wardrobe to keep me warm.
I used up 3 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Solids (color: 640 Fisherman) that was in my stash for a very long time. I do have stuff in my stash that was not purchased at my shop, but acquired before I bought the shop. I used 9mm (US 13) knitting needles. This was a great project to work on while at Sean’s baseball games. I was able to knit & chat with the other baseball moms at the same time. I would definitely knit this project again. It’s a fave of mine now!
