Old Knits - Revisited

Let's face it, most things we knit are for cooler weather. I miss my hand knits over the summer and look forward to pulling things out as winter approaches. My favorite projects to get to know again are my big red mittens (Ravelry link). They're not to practical for fine motor skills since they're felted and quite thick but boy are they warm!
finished mitts!
What items are you looking forward to getting unpacked for the winter?

I saw gas for $2.49 / gallon today, I never thought I'd see the day when gas would be < $2.50 / gallon again. Let's hope it stays this way.

Oh, my! The lowest I've seen gas is $2.89 - and like you, thought I'd never see it that low again.

Having fun working on your dishcloth swap package!

ohhhhhhh! My color on color scarf! It's the best thing about the arrival of cool weather. That and my road kill kitty scarf.
If I ever get a second, I'd love to try and design some felted mittens that are like fitted or anatomically correct or something. Mine turn me into lobster girl and it's hard even to drive with them on.

I just told my husband that you saw gas as low as $2.49 a gal! Man, here we thought today as we drove by the station $3.18 was CHEAP:)

I dragged out the Fetchings.

The socks are out, at last!

We actually felt okay driving to the cabin with gas as low as it's been forever...
