A couple weeks ago my daughter’s school hosted an environmental day. I took my solar ovens to show how I dye wool with them. Another mother brought jam that she makes in her solar oven, and we displayed our products to the visiting schools.
I thought of making hot water-bottle covers with this wool, but I only had about 50g of each colour. I love knitting hats and scarves, but thought I would try mittens.
I used the pattern from Weekend Knitting, by Melanie Falick, “super mittens”. I made a slight change to the pattern by putting an opening for the fingers to come out.
They were fun and easy to knit, and make great presents for people who work on computers in cold offices!
Now I need to knit some smaller mittens, for smaller hands.
