We don't get many days of cold-as-hell weather, so until last night, I had never really seen the need for full-on mittens. I was fortunate enough to find a wonderful bulky mitten pattern (rav link), and in a matter of hours I had a pair of cozy wool mittens.
Those mittens (which, if you're keeping track at home, makes THREE FINISHED PROJECTS so far this year) came in handy today, considering it's about 24F right now. This guy, however, loves the weather. He wishes every day was a snow day.
