|Yes, those are pj pants with little skier on them. It's been too cold to ski lately, so I am living vicariously though my pj's. Plus they're warm and my house is cold, I'm not changing into real pants today.|
As Mothers will, she wasn't above using guilt and told me about how her current fabric mitts are held together with duct tape, and she couldn't wait to show off her brand new mitts to all the ladies at work.
'Okay Mom, I got it. I'm sorry Mom. Yes I love you too, I promise I'm working on them. Yes right now, I'm putting down everything else. I'll have them sent off by the end of this week. No I promise.'

Yarn: Nova's Earth Collection Alpaca Peru Natural in Smoke.
I made a couple of modifications, mostly by adding length, but I altered the palm garter stitches a bit. I've explained it on my Ravelry project page if you're interested.
This yarn was lovely to use and wonderful to wear. I like it so much that I bought a couple more skeins to make up Cedar Glen mitts for the Holla Knits KAL.
And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get these in the mail with the hopes that they arrive early next week. Because dammit if I didn't get these finished TWO DAYS EARLIER than I promised my Mom!
Well, promised this time. Because I think my IOU claimed sometime in January. Oops. Love you Mom!
