Little Mittens... fast and easy!

7. November 2011 12:10 by Jobo | 0 Comments

I have quite a few little friends... aka children in my life... who will no doubt need several pairs of hand knit mittens for the upcoming snowball season.  A couple of weeks ago, I just didn't have the attention span to make any larger projects, so I just grabbed some leftover small yarn balls and went to town on some toddler mittens.  They're made from Acrylic (various brands) so as to be indestructible and inexpensive, if they get lost it isn't a big deal.

At this point, having made about 6 pairs of these in a short time period, I can whip out a pair of these in an evening... if I don't get sidetracked by something else.  Plus it's an excellent way to use up the scraps at the end of other projects.  I've made brown and blue ones as you see above, but also a couple of other colors.  I think I got 3 pairs of the robin's egg blue ones out of the ball I had left!

I hope to make a few more pairs and mail them out to the eventual recipients just before the holidays.  What kid doesn't love getting mail!  Especially Mail in a big envelope... with their name on it!  and something fun inside!  And maybe stickers!  I think I enjoy mail like that as much as any kid would ;)
