mind like an elephant
A while back, Bookish Wendy blogged about some mittens. Mittens she had purchased at the infamous cold and rainy NH Sheep & Wool and few years back. The mittens were made of recylced sweaters, which had been fulled, sewn together in a colorful and random fashion, and lined with fleece. She raved about these mittens, about how warm and wonderful they were on that cold, raw day.
A few weeks ago I was shopping and saw these fingerless mitts and mittens. “A-ha!”, I said to myself, “these look just like those mittens from Wendy’s post.” Feeling whimsical, and having just gotten paid, I bought the fingerless mitts. I don’t need mittens, I already have toasty warm sheepskin mittens.
It was pretty raw this morning. Cold, wet, drizzly, windy – just the kinda of New England day you read about it. “A-ha!!” I said to myself, “I can try out those new fingerless mitts.” My hands were cranky while walking the dog (hence the A-ha! moment), they were so not cranky on my walk to the T. They were warm and toasty and comfortable. And since these are made of fulled sweaters and lined with fleece, I don’t have to worry about getting them wet!
I am soooo going back to buy some mittens. (No, I’m not telling you where I got them until after I buy my mittens ).
ETA: I found them on-line (my google-fu is strong)! You can order them from baabaazuzu.
