Off to the frog pond, I'm afraid. And I'm really bummed about it, too.

Daughter was here over the weekend and admired my Porcini baby fan mitts. I excitedly offer to make her a pair. This is such a fun and quick pattern to work.

I thought I might have enough Mountain Colors Bearfoot leftover from the Lawrence Socks but, just to be on the safe side, I unwound the small ball and measured and knew it wouldn't be enough.

Here's where a stash might come in handy. I dug through the bottom drawer of leftovers and actually found a whole SMALL ball. Years ago (receipt shows 9/25/04) I had purchased three 25-gr balls of a cashmere blend fingering weight to make her a pair of footies. 92 meters would be just enough I thought. NOT.

What a pity.
