Yeah, we used to call them "snowmobile mitts" that were the large gauntlets with shearling or some fluffy fabric on the top, they were marketed to snowmobilers when I was a kid and were fairly cheap and large and warm but I know what your talking about.I have an old set of arctic mitts from my survey days. You didn’t include a nose wipe on the
cuff, which sounds bad but as you know when it’s cold it’s really hard to get Kleenex
out of your pocket.
Yeah looks good, never had one of those style of hats, but that looks warm. Leather on the outside? Maybe when I'm all done the other set of mitts I'll have to try something like that. Im starting to think maybe I should make a couple other sets to sell or gift after the "christmas set" are done. I should be able to slowly sew stuff together at home, I like to keep my hands busy if the TV is on or im not doing anything in the cold weather.Not made but bought. Claims to be Russian rabbit. Don't know about that but it's crazy warm. For when I have to go out in less than Zero F.
Good eyes. Yes there be whiskers and eye holes. I like the character of that, you get to see what a muskrat looks like. It may not be as appealing as the fur of our national critter the beaver and is sort of non typical to a traditional design, but in hindsight I like that it gives the animal an identity instead of just being a piece of fur... I've been riding the bus this past week as its been down to -34C instead of riding the bike so I decided to wear these whilst waiting for the bus, it seems I get a compliment or comment every day I bring them out. The bus drivers seem to really like them, I think they mostly all had an accent and I assumed were from a warmer climate originally so there is probably a different appeal.I hope Jen's giving us all the mud salute.
Are my eyes deceiving me, or do you have eye holes, whiskers and a nose on the muskrat mitts? Nice touch!
