We plan to go to the snow in a couple of weeks and I thought Hollis needs some mittens! We bought some ice-breaker mitts for him a couple of years ago and they are still too big. Now I can knit, I can knit some that fit his little hands!
I found a straight-forward pattern on Ravelry and a ball of Debbie Bliss’s Cashmerino from the local wool shop in Thirroul. These little mittens are quite addictive to knit and the ball of yarn was enough to knit three (they can be worn on either hand) and a swatch.
