fingerless mittens, leg warmers and socks
New England Boiled Mittens. Yankee Magazine
in February of 1983 published an article by Robin Hansen on "women
who knew how to knit woolen mittens that were nearly impenetrable to the
cold, especially when wet." These mittens are knit large and

sports. A copy of this article is available with the purchase of
wool (with permission from the publisher of Yankee Magazine.)
