University - by Tin Can Knits

Vancouver is a university town, full of students bounding about with their youthful optimism, questioning everything and re-inventing the world daily.

These preppy mittens are a great gift for the excited student heading off to university. They keep hands toasty when the air conditioning gets out of control in the library, or when you head out to the beach for a picnic and poetry reading.
