I want a pair of red mittens but didn't like the acrylic store bought ones. So I made my own. It was also to keep me from casting on the Cedar Leaf Shawlette. The mittens only took a couple of days to knit. While these mittens are not the Red Olympic Mitten pattern, they're close (I mean, mittens are mittens) so I made a donation.
Want to see something incredible? Knitters have raised over $1,000,000 for Doctors Without Borders.
And if you're interested in knitting your own mittens, Swatchless has the Red Olympic mitten pattern. The proceeds are going to Penguins Can Fly.
I will now have to find something else to knit for the next two weeks.
