One Down, One to Go
Amazing what -16 degrees prompts you to do. At that temperature, just breathing deeply is painful. While we rarely get to zero degrees here in this part of the Rockies, I want to be prepared next time it happens. As you already saw, I made mittens in a hurry for both of my daughters so that they would be warm as they wait for the bus.
Now, it's my turn for something cozy. I selected Rowan Cocoon, a merino and mohair blend, in Emerald green; you can't imagine how plush this yarn feels. Then I went off to Ravelry.com for a free pattern. I knew I wanted cables, and this patterns features three of them. The cuff is extra-long so that my forearms will be impervious to even the coldest of winds.
Old Man Winter, I'm ready and waiting for you, or at least, my left hand is.
