Frankenstein Mittens

Haven't posted in almost a year! I guess that's crazy, but hey. Life gets in the way. 

I started and finished my first Christmas present for the year, a pair of convertible mittens for my friend at work, Karen. She has to go out in the field in insanely cold temps and dig in the ground. Occasionally, she needs to write things down (paperwork and the like), so she needs to use her fingers.  Being in the field in the winter can be downright gruesome and who knows what redneck bassackwards place you'll be in? So super bright colors can cheer up (and help keep you from being mistaken for a deer).

Here are Karen's "Frankenstein Mittens." Shhh. Don't tell her.  They're a surprise!!
