Just a quick post today as we are planning on venturing out past the snow banks to go to the library as well as a few other pit stops before basketball and gymnastics. As you've heard me mention we've been playing lot's with our next door neighbors this week. Lot's of snow=lot's of fun! The big concern with their littlest who is just barely one has been keeping little mittens on her sweet little hands. So yesterday after playing in the snow I made it my mission to come up with something that would suit her better. After having finished all I can think is "where was I with these nifty ideas when my kids where this little?" I was inspired recently by a blog I frequent often housefullofjays and her fantastic "rocket man" hat and dug into some recycled sweater wool.
I cut out a basic and long mitten pattern and cut out two in fleece and in felted wool. I should have done a whole tutorial, but at the time I was "winging it" as usual. I have a feeling I'll make more and I will give more details then.

So there it is, what I'm hoping will be a great way to keep some really cute little fingers really warm. We are giving them to her later today so maybe I'll get to find out soon!
Enjoy your day.
