I have a friend that is a serious biker. He even bikes to work in the winter. He was telling me that his hands are always cold, because he needs the warmth of his fingers together, but needs to be able to use his fingers. He requested lobster mittens, and I agreed to help him out. Anyone with a smaller carbon footprint than me deserves mittens.
I couldn't find a pattern, so I made one up. The first mitten didn't turn out well, but the second one is a success. I am really excited that I was able to make up a pattern. It almost makes up for them being so ugly.
