Mittens In July??

I haven't knitted in a couple weeks. It's hard to want to hold something warm when it's so hot outside. I decided to make a small project so it wouldn't cover so much of my lap as I knit. I've started a pair of adult mittens from leftover wool I had in my stash (I have more then just that ball, don't worry). I found the pattern in the Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Countryside. I remember seeing the instructions and hoping that my knitting skills would improve enough to accomplish mittens one day. Now, 3 pairs of children's mittens later, I'm ready to tackle adult mittens. :) If this heat keeps up, maybe everyone will have mittens in their stockings this year! :)
