I love to knit, especially in the cold winter months. It's dark when I leave for work in the morning and it's dark when I come home. It's cold, I mean cold, outside and there just isn't as much to do. Knitting keeps me busy, warm and it's a creative project for me to feel like I'm doing something productive rather than just watching Netflix. I recently finished these mittens and just love them. They are so warm and cozy and perfect for the below freezing February days where it just will not stop snowing. Have I mentioned yet that Michigan has broken it's all time record for the most snow ever this year and winter is not even close to over. These beauties really came in handy when I got my car stuck in a snowbank the other day and had to shovel it out. Ahh, Michigan. It's a love/hate relationship sometimes.
