On Sunday at bathtime (roughly 5:30 pm) Thing 2 guilt-tripped me into making her a pair of fingerless mittens for our trip to the snow...the next morning. Then her sisters started working on me and before you knew it, I had put aside my sweater for three pair of improvised fingerless mittens.
I knocked Thing 2's first one out before they were out of the tub, finished the second and cast-on Thing 3's first one before they went to bed. I finished her second Monday morning. Thing 1 had hers done by Monday night. Too late for that snow trip, but we'll be going again. Full details are on the Ravelry project pages here, here and here.
