Because life’s celebrations shouldn’t cost the Earth

Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand.....

Alice loves fingerless gloves and my Mum was looking for 'easy to transport' knitting projects which she could take to hospital appointments to while away waiting times.  A match made in heaven!  We turned to the internet for inspiration and found this wonderful picture, post and pattern from the very talented Laura over at Pickin' and Throwin'.  

Alice calls them her 'Hugs and Kisses' mittens, as here in the UK people often sign off Birthday cards with a series of 'XOXOXO's' which are then known as hugs and kisses!

She wanted a chunky grey wool and Granny got started immediately.  She must be a quick worker as they were on Alice's hands within a week, including postal time!

Mum was a little disappointed that the dappled grey colour slightly obscured Laura's lovely cable design but the upside is that the shadings should also prevent the mitts from needing a wash after every wearing!

Thanks Granny xxx
