It's August and My Needles are HOT!

Mittens, in August?!  Yes, indeed, mittens in August because before you know it, it's October and folks are already starting to think about cool weather and holiday gifts.  While these beautiful mittens are knit from a bulky yarn, it still takes time to make a pair.  There's the knitting, the washing, the blocking (the pieces are pinned after they are blotted with a thick towel), the drying (his may take 24 hours or more) and finally, the part I like the least - sewing in the ends.  All this effort, but they sure are worth it and we'll have these packaged and ready for the shows this fall in seven different colors.
