Waaah! My mittens didn't turn up in the lost property office. Which means that someone STOLE them and is walking around with my lovely little fingerless mittens e'en as I write. Grrrrrrr. I almost wish I didn't still have the hat - at least then I'd have been able to write the whole set off, but now I have half of it I'm tragically tormented by the knowledge that it's incomplete. Also, the hat reminds me of how lovely my little mittens were. Sob. Also, I bet I won't be able to find another pair of fingerless mittens, which is very annoying. I have tiny monkey hands (with proportionally quite long fingers, but still, small) and regular gloves are always too big. I like fingerless things anyway, because stupid gloves make me clumsy, but the thing that makes fingerless mits better than gloves is that you can curl your fingers inside them when it's specially cold. Oh, why, WHY didn't I put the stupid things in my bag? Or at least look back at the bus seat when we got up? *weeps*

Awww, that sucks! But I can't help laughing a tiny bit, because all this angst over mittens reminds me of the bit in Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married where Lucy is wailing about the single child's mitten she found on the street...

I can't believe you're like, mocking her pain.

No, no I'm not! I'm merely drawing a comparison with a great literary heroine, and encouraging Anna to see the amusing side...

I WILL NEVER, EVER SEE THE AMUSING SIDE OF HAVING A FOOT-STAMPING TANTRUM AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BECAUSE I LOST MY MITTENS!!!!!!!!

Do you mean the sort of mitts that have half fingers or the ones that end with one large hole at the knuckles area?

Anyway, try these:

Aha! A friend of mine was dropping not-so-subtle hints about my newfound mad knitting skillz and her desire for fingerless gloves, but I didn't have a pattern. Thankyou!

I meant the one large hole ones (ooh-er) - thanks! Now I just have to figure out how to make the thumb hole....

I hope the person who swiped your mittens instead of turning them in is eaten by a polar bear. Or a dinosaur, or something.
