Mittens for D, from S (December 2011)

Of course, I also forgot to take pictures of the finished product, with the string that ties them–but I hope you gentle readers will believe me when I tell you that it was pretty nifty (a double crochet chain, sturdy and elegant in its simplicity).

Best of all was the email I got from the buyer: “She loves the gloves!”

What else is there to say, right? 😀
