One of my coworkers is from Maine and her grandmother knit her a pair of mittens that she loved. She asked if I would make her a pair and offered to pay me. I don't know that I would even know how much to ask her for, especially from a friend, so instead I've been keeping track of the time it's taking me to make the mittens and she can get me something from my wishlist instead. Then it's just an extra treat on top of her enjoying the mittens.
I started on Sunday. As of last night, I was almost done the second mitten. If she's lucky, she can bring these to Maine with her.
