Tailgating Mitts

Another finished object!

I made these mitts for my good friend Jenny from the Block. Jenny is still young enough to go tailgating every MSU home game. Jenny thinks I am a granny because I knit. Despite her teasing, I have made her these stripey mitts to keep her hands warm.

In other knitting news, I have finished the first of my Red Rivulets socks and have just begun the second using Judy Becker's Magic Cast-On. If you haven't tried this cast-on, I highly recommend it. It's almost worth knitting a pair of toe-up socks just to try the cast-on. It makes the tiniest, perfect grafted toe. It's so cute!
