I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect mitten:
Jean the Queen made them for me for my birthday, or was it Christmas? in 2008. And here they are – completed. Handmade gifts are always allowed to take years and swallow up all the birthdays and Christmases around them. Look at their button:
This friday I’m grateful for:
Wonderful handmade wool alpaca warm mittens keeping my hands toasty.
Special mail. I love a package.
I think I’m grateful for the cold, but I’m not sure how to dress for it quite yet.
I’m certainly grateful for my very own professional insulator.
For a brilliant immune system.
For garland draped mantels.
For a pile of fabric calling my name.
For a dainty wee necklace encircling my throat.
And an old scarf from a dear friend that I almost never take off.
those are lovely. well done JEAN!
