Must Make

Every now and then I get a overwhelming desire to make a specific pattern. Most things I put in my Ravelry queue or in a folder on my hard drive and wait for 'the right time' to make them. But sometimes, for some unknown reason, an item will hit me hard. Like the doily rug -
This time it's these thrummed mittens (Rav link here).
Love.Them. You crochet roving on the inside of the mitten - the wool roving felts as you wear them, becoming softer and thicker - so they are extra warm. Interweave even put a how-to video on You Tube. How cool is that?

And I'll even have a chance to wear them - we're going to visit Addy in February and Rachel wants to go on a sleigh ride for her 30th (!!!) birthday. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
