The pile, it grows!
This is the last of them (hooray, sez you!). Now I plan to add some machine stitching to all the seams and then I'll be ready to do something else with them. They're all different sizes at this point but come roughly close in measurements.
And, as part of my ongoing quest to fill the Christmas box, this is the first of what will be several pairs of men's mittens. Unfortunately I came to a screeching halt when I came to the realization that even if a yarn is labelled as being a '4' in weight it doesn't necessarily follow that it actually is the same across different brands. Argh. So, I await delivery of some stash in the 'right' weight and the yarn I was hoping to use is set aside for something else down the line.
