Queen Lucy’s Mitts

In a ruthless quest for Ravellenic Glory without undue exertion, I decided to see how many medals I could win from a single project. (The Ravellenic Games run concurrently with the Olympic Games, and award medals for events like the Mitten Medley, The Hat Dash, The Sweater Marathon)
I wound up having to write my own pattern (which kind of negates the ‘without undue exertion’ part).

We had a lot of discussion about a name: originally the working title was ‘Twisty Beady Mitts’ (names are not my forte). Then we thought they looked like bus or tractor tyres, but they’re too girly. Someone suggested Naiad, which led us to Narnia, and the wonderful Ingrid suggested they looked like something Lucy or Susan would have worn when they were Queens. So Queen Lucy’s Mitts they became!
