never find a better prize

mittens
These mittens were a special request for a dear family member. Special thanks to K for his help with the embroidery - I didn't want to try to make the motifs identical, and they came out a bit too similar, looking like I had just messed one up a bit. Time was short and I was loathe to start again. The solution was so simple I didn't see it myself - just add another swirl so they were more obviously different.
