Talk about a quick project! Each mitt took only a couple hours to knit.
I think I was supposed to make fingerless gloves for him a few years ago. Originally they were supposed to be so he could wear them to drink beer on cold Thursday nights with the running buddies. He has been running in the mornings instead of afternoons for a couple years now. So the mitts are no longer needed for the original purpose.
The yarn is the same Vanna's Choice that I used to make the cap for cold days at the fire station. So maybe these can be used at the fire station too. I still call them Beer-Drinking Man Mitts anyway.
