My husband sometimes questions my vast collection of leftover yarn bits. There are times when I am tempted to throw them away, but more often I greedily cling to them like Scrooge McDuck counting his coins.

I had a bit of Noro sock yarn left over, so I decided to gobble up every bit. I saw these mittens on Chicken Betty's blog and thought that was the best dang idea I'd heard in a while. I followed Elizabeth Zimmerman's May pattern from Knitter's Almanac. I followed the pattern exactly except that the gauge is different.

They are strung on a crochet chain through her coat sleeves. These are so frickin' cute.

These pictures are of my foyer. It's not a lost and found center at a homeless shelter. I am hoping for better pictures this weekend, but I think we all know that's not likely to happen. When we are having fun in the few precious hours of sunlight, I never think to grab the camera.
