Mittens for Mom

I finally finished the pair of mittens and mini-scarf that I started for Mom in April. Let's not forget that these were a Christmas present. And that she lost one of her mittens in January or February and really could have used these back then, but I did not have them done.

Let's also not forget that I have sworn off extensive Christmas knitting. What's done by Christmastime is what gets given. No more killing myself or beating myself up. No more giving a coupon when I don't finish something, so that January is a downer because I really want to knit mittens during NaKniMitMo but I can't because I am finishing Christmas gifts.

Now that that's out of the way, the specs.
