No, dear Reader you probably don't. I made them in April 2011 for my favourite brother in law, Kieran. We were all out to lunch today and he had them with him. One of them has a huge hole in the thumb gussett, and he asked if it was beyond repair. I was knitting Leon's current green socks at the time, but they were not the same shade of green. I asked if he minded if the mend would be visible and he said no. Bearing in mind Tom of Holland's Visible Mending Programme I decided to just do the repair as neatly as possible.
.I have to say I'm thrilled that these little mitts that I put together for Kieran are keeping his hand warm three years later. Maybe this year I'll make him a hat
