Mitten Hell is where I am. Are you in mitten hell as well? (Sock hell, and scarf hell are very similar as well)
Do you even know what mitten hell is? Well, if you don't then you have got very lucky this holiday season. I will explain to you what mitten hell is, because I feel that if I have to go through this, then so should you! Mitten hell, is where you knit on mittens (and knit, and knit) all day long and you still have a billion mittens to make (most of these mitten are for me, so I don't really have to make them, I just have really cold hands and one pair of really crappy mittens.) It is hard to get out of and while you still want to knit other stuff, you, for some reason will keep going back to the mittens.
Maybe it is because that Mittens are the Garments of the gods. Of course the garment of the gods changes quite often (the gods are fickle, I tell you, that is why we have that whole January thaw thing) Here recently the garment of the gods was socks, which didn't last for long. Last winter it was blankets.( I knit an afghan in a month, a month!) and this summer it was sweaters. (I knit about four and a half). So, how can Mittens be of the gods, and hell-like at the same time. This is because the gods are apparently mad at me and putting me through mitten hell for some previous offence against them. I don't know what offence this was, but I am on my knees, begging the gods for mercy.
