it is well known (by people who know me well) that i am more than somewhat obsessed with both the olympics and my beloved neighbors to the north, so when it came time for the vancouver 2010 winter games you can only guess at my excitement.
i became somewhat obsessed with finding a pair of the red olympic mittens that *every* olympic-loving canadian seemed to be wearing. only problem was that down here in the states they were more than a little hard to come by.
up steps the amazing kim (aka treblemaker on ravelry) to save the day!! she graciously offered to send me a pair of the mittens thereby making me the happiest wanna-be-canadian in the whole entire united states!!
in exchange i got her a mini helmet of her favorite nfl team - and superbowl XLIV champions - the new orleans saints. also, since i didn't feel that one small helmet was equal to the amazingness of the olympic mittens, i knit her up a saints themed dishcloth as well.
the mittens, of course, came with me to nyc for the sandwich meetup. i promised kim that i would take a picture of me and the mittens in new york, but once we started it was impossible to stop.
so here now, i present to you, "the olympic mittens go to nyc" a pictorial thank you to kim.
and i'll tell you right now kim - if the mittens had even a fraction of the fun that i had on this trip then they had the time of their lives!! thank you again for such a fun exchange!
