The weather has turned chilly, and everyone in my household is scurrying for extra layers before heading outdoors.  Hats, mittens and scarves are all getting a good workout.

Last week I loaned gave away two pairs of my mitts.  The first pair was easy to surrender.  When it came to the second pair, I hesitated for just a split second, but as a mother I will do almost anything for my kids.  That includes giving up my handknits.  

Over the weekend I realized that my generosity had seriously depleted my own supply of mitts.  I was in a store and heard two women talking about losing mittens.  They were discussing where to buy cheap replacements.  I contemplated that option for a brief moment before coming to my senses.  I have enough yarn to make mittens for all of New England.  Why on earth would I buy a pair?

I added mittens to my knitting list and got busy.  This time around I selected the yarn before the pattern.  After a little time on Ravelry, I was reminded of this design.

Newfoundland Mitts.  A few years ago I made several pairs of these mittens for the kids.  There were colorful, warm and best of all, quick to make.  This pair is all mine.

In case you missed the announcement last week, I'm offering 15% off all online orders.  This offer ends today.  See the website for details.
