is one borne from necessity that can be made without a trip to the store. it was thanksgiving weekend and i had just made todd some mittens for his birthday. i was still on a "i love mittens!" high, and decided that lydia needed some, too. i just started with a bunch of scraps and she liked the look. so for the next one she requested an un-matched mate. what do you think? i dig the scrappy, wacky look. and yes, that's snow. we got a bunch last weekend and it's the pretty, fluffy kind.
