2 days of neg temperatures have reaffirmed what I already knew - I hate freezing weather.
But I have a pseudo strummed mitten of my own now.
As a sign that life is weird, the white Paton's Classic Wool I used needed to be a size 3 needle on this mitt, where I used a 4 for the brown pair. I like my thumb much better, but I need to reinforce the base of it with some more white yarn.
Tomorrow the high is supposed to reach the balmy heights of 15 deg F. Glad we had a couple feet of snow, otherwise all my perennials would be dead. As it is, I think my blue hydrangea will have all the exposed branches dead come spring.
