Kabsa is a traditional, everyday, spiced rice and meat dish originating in Saudi Arabia. It is a one pot meal; easy to put together, and pleasing to everyone. These mitts are named after that dish. Comfort knitting is like comfort food. Also, may I admit that I felt especially clever using rice stitch and naming these after a rice dish?
