Mittens for Mo

Mo Rocca that is. Well, this all started a few weeks ago, Mo Rocca mentioned his dislike of handknit sweaters..."They're itchy." Well, some of the knitters from Ravelry took note and the next week (I think), Mo issued a retraction. Norah Gaughan planned and coordinated a sweater that was knit and assembled by 4 fabulous knitters around the country. Read more about the sweater for Mo here on the WBEZ blog.

Franklin Habit was there and gave Mo a copy of his book It Itches.

Mo's mittens, Lamb's Pride Bulky #10 needles. Very simple, very quick. Just the thing when you make up your mind and buy yarn on Thursday, and need to have them finished by the next Thursday, and you're really busy with kids on spring break.

P.S. Mo is a knitter now. He knit himself a hat.
