I'm not so heartless as to steal my mother's mittens and leave her un-woolied for any great length of time. As promised I cast on on Monday night and finished her new pair on the train on Tuesday:
Another pair of Maine Morning Mittens to the standard pattern, this time in Fleece Artist Kid Aran in Woodland - fluffy, soft and incredibly warm.
I promised mittens and I have delivered. Or at least, as of this lunchtime I have entrusted a small squishy envelope to the post box and may the Royal Mail have mercy on its fibres.
