One more to go. It looks freakishly long, but it's not. The mittens are being knit for a friend with hands a quarter inch shorter than mine and these fit me fine, except that they are just a tad snug in length. I'm chalking the weird visual up to being because Kate and I are both so long and lean.
I think it's also appropriate to mention that I knit that mitten while watching North & South on Netflix. You see, she may be my friend, but Kate is a Civil War re-enactor. And a dammed Yankee! I, on the other hand, was taught the words to Dixie in preschool.
And now that I'm singing "...wish I was in the land of cotton..." I'm off to knit mitten number two. And maybe sing Henry the VIII, I Am instead.
