Hubby's Mittens


I just love seeing how everyone's Peekaboo mittens have come out!
This was my first pair, done in some hand spun wool I bought at a fiber fair.

I finished my second pair yesterday. I didn't even get a chance to have a photoshoot with them first before Hubby wore them out to play in the snow with the kids.

I made them from an angora/wool blend yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater. Hubby says they're incredibly warm and were even good for sledding (although Megan was right about making snowballs).

I think I'll go through my yarn stash and whip up another pair. I've got a couple of March birthdays I need gifts for!

Those look great! It's great to know these work for sledding, although we don't get too many chances to sled in Seattle!

A clever way to use up the stash yarn.
