When I was rummaging in my wool stash I found the yarn I used to knit the Bats and decided it would be perfect for some "back to school" mitts. I have always hated all the Back To School adverts, especially as they seem to come out within hours of children breaking up for the summer holiday. I can remember when I was little that feeling of sadness as the school holidays ended and the nervous anticipation of a new teacher and everything that came with a new year at school. Anyways, the mittens, the stripes remind me of a badger don't you think. They are knitted in the last of my Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Mist (dark grey) and Dove Heather (lighter).
Of course I haven't woven in the ends yet...I so hate that job!!!
