homemade and loving it
The one time I took TLM into the yarn shop with me, she made me buy a ball of yarn for her. It was this bright blue and bulky Panda Toto yarn.
Then she made me promise to make something for her out of it.
Then she made me promise to make mittens.
Eventually I found a mittens pattern I could understand, and which didn't require a set of double-pointed needles (which I don't have).
Of course, I didn't have enough yarn. So I supplemented with some leftover silver grey wool from the boy's scarf, plus the pinky purple acrylic left over from TLM's/my scarf, plus two strands of white wool which TLM found in her daycare centre's stash.
The finished mittens are wonky and mishapen and far too big.
But TLM doesn't care.
