After the big storm we had to cut down our little birch grove beside our house. When Kevin and I built our home we made sure to save as many birch trees as we possibly could. Now they are all gone. Kevin is creative and he had a wonderful idea, which takes some of the sadness from our missing trees. Our new coat tree. When the boys come in from sledding, ice fishing and skating this winter, there is a new place beside the fire to hang their hats, gloves and scarves. The shipment of Madelinetosh I received on Friday did not disappoint! I am not lacking for projects! I enjoy playing with the color combinations. After the hats are all done, I would love to knit a pair of color work mittens with the leftover yarn. Any pattern suggestions?
