My mother-in-law is one of my favorite people, and she is cold ALL.WINTER.LONG! This year I decided she needed SUPER DUPER warm mittens for the holidays.

I snagged some of Jill Draper’s newest yarn, Olana, and decided it would be perfect for fully lined mittens... I included some nupps and twisted sts to keep things interesting. The result is mittens that will keep Baba’s fingers toasty warm!
