In a testing sort of mood?  Go volunteer over on ravelry.  All three of the mitts inspired by the house painting blues are ready for someone else to beat them up.

Each of the three patterns is super quick (maybe 4 hours per mitt) and takes less than 100 yards of fingering weight yarn per pair.  They’re perfect for your leftover sock yarn bits.  And, on the off chance you’re a Christmas knitter and have started to panic, these will totally knock some names off your list.

At the moment I’m most entertained by the yellow ones, but I’m fickle and have loved them all in their turn.

I think I’ll use them as an excuse to do my nails this weekend…can I pull off orange?
