Hard to believe that I have avoided mittens all this time. Something about wanting to make mittens as Christmas gifts a few years ago and being told by a friend "No one wears mittens" stopped me dead in my tracks. But it was nippy the other day and I wished I had a pair stashed in my car for the ice cold steering wheel I faced. So I scoured Ravelry (that addictive knitting site) and found this easy pattern. Vroom, one hour later (big fat yarn and big fat needles) I had my mitten done. Yawn. Where was the challenge? Even the dreaded thumb turned out to be nothing tricky. Sigh. I want a puzzle.
