I’m so pleased that I finished these - why did I leave them languishing for 11 months? I have no clue - it took me less than 2 hours to finish them - including weaving in all the ends and finding/attaching buttons. I am a loony for not doing it before!
(And the cashmere mitts are now found too - choices!)

I have lost my lovely cashmere mitts somewhere, and my hands get so cold… so stripy garter stitch mitts to match (kind of) the lovely stripy Scalene scarf that Jo gave to me, which I wear constantly as it is just so snuggly and beautiful.
