I started two sets of mittens yesterday. One is two-colored and one is solid. They are both made from yarn that was donated to the baby charity I work with, but isn't useful by us for the babies. So I save it or distribute it for other charitable uses. The yarns are...who knew?...Montgomery Ward brand yarn. 100% wool. 4oz was apparently purchased for $1.19, if that indicates the age of the yarn.

I did a 2x2 rib on the two-color mittens and a twisted 1x1 rib for the solids...

I believe I used to be able to get 4 ounces of wool worsted for about $1.19 at Woolworth's.

In 1970. Ahem.
