WV Mittens
I finished my 2nd project for the Ravelympics. I wanted to design a pair of mittens for JD (dh). I figured that would be a challenge

I did have to frog the first one several (many) times before I could finally get the thumb right, the design to his liking, and then the top decreases (he wanted a square)...in the end all that matters is he likes them and will wear them

Yarn: Patons Classic Merino Woo in Navy and Gold
Needle: Size 6 Magic Looped
pattern: My own

Great job Dustina!!! Way to go. If he agreed to wear them, that is an added bonus to the fact that they look fantastic!

I love them! I come from a family of Mountaineers. Dh and my oldest son are going to some of the football games this year. (Younger son and I will watch from the comfort of the family room!)

Great job!!!

I don't use the word awesome very often, but those truly are. Your husband will have the coolest warm hands at the game.
