Saturday night before going to bed, the local mittens were completed! It was with a sense of real satisfaction, delight, even, that I finished these mittens. I had started the red and blue mittens first, way back in October, but put them on the back burner so I could complete the five pairs of traveling mittens and the hat. (I was so happy to put those travelers in the mail on Wednesday and was assured they would arrive at their destinations on Saturday...though so far I have not heard of any of them arriving! Since everyone is expecting them, I suppose they do not need to be under the tree on Christmas, but I had hoped they would be waiting for the little girls and boy.)
Merry Christmas to all!
