Another Snowy Day Before the End of the Year and I started Those Fingerless Mitts.

More snow today.  They said between 4 to 6 inches today by the time it’s done later this evening.  I took this, this morning around 10am.  They also said frigid temps are coming in this evening.  For the next 3 days it will be -2F or so in the daytime (ambient temps, so wind chills will take it down they said to -20 to -30) and -17F ambient temps at night, so temps with wind chills around -30F and occasionally down to -40F.  BRRR, winter is here.  So I am staying toasty warm in the house.  I did remember to put “Heet” in my gas tank just in case I have to drive somewhere.

I’ve started on the Te Ara Fingerless Mitts for my friend to help use up her left over yarn from the 3 Color Cowl I knit her.  I’ve made these before here .  They were fun to knit and I think they look very classic and elegant :).  I will be playing a little bit of yarn chicken with this skein.  Weight wise, I should barely have enough, but this is a little heavier weight fingering weight and I hate cutting things so close just in case.  If it doesn’t work out I will have to frog and use one of the other colors she had left over, but this was the one she wanted them knit out of.   Crossing my fingers.
