This is variegated yarn, so I can't take credit for the striping. I'm not sure what color this was, but it was Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. Yes, Grumpy Grandma. Crocheted mittens are very warm. When I first started crocheting, I wondered about the holes in crochet. But when I put on gloves, hats, and scarves, they actually get too hot so I have to take them off, especially in the car. Convertible gloves are nice. They're great for fishing out keys from your pockets an make nice driving gloves. You can put a pair of those one size fits all stretchy magic gloves underneath if the temps turn subzero, like it has been here for the past week or so. Toasty!
Welsh corgis are cool.
