Shamelessly pink, shamelessly lacy, shamelessly frilly.  There is really nothing somber or serious or even respectable here.  These mitts are nothing more than a confection.  They are the knitting equivalent of marshmallows.  They were cast on the minute the Olympics finished and completed in a few hours.  I’ll turn my attention to more worthy things some time soon, but these were just the thing to make up for the uncharacteristic fidelity demonstrated during the Olympics.
