this reminds me of something i wrote into Jen Singer (mommasaid.net) about mittens in may... my son's kidnergarten class was doing a spring concert on the seasons and he needed mittens, not gloves. I ended up staying up all night crocheting them (started from a pattern i found on lionbrand, decided I didn't like the way it was going so i "modified" it and made him some red, white, and green striped ones that he still wears).... only to have the teachers decide to NOT use mittens after all!!!
But yeah, count me in. I was thinking of doing some mittens anyway to clean out some stash
