I knit Christmas gifts very sparingly, only if inspiration strikes me and only to those who are worthy. This fall, my mom started raving about new mustard-colored colorways she’d seen. Mustard-colored this, mustard-colored that… When I spotted this new yarn at the LYS, I knew it had to be mittens for her.
