toddler mittens

We are half way done with our Christmas vacation (sniff sniff). Portland was so full of snow (18 inches!) that we just cuddled inside a lot. My daughter isn't a fan of mittens because her little fingers couldn't work. I crocheted her some fingerless mittens with this pattern. And they are winners! I used Peaches and Cream cotton yarn. Probably a weird choose for mittens but that is what I had and thought the colors were fun for her. Punky Brewster like. Plus we found out this vacation that she does not like to touch snow so the chances of them getting wet are slim.

Love the colours :0)

Glad your wee one liked them - my wee man is a thumb-sucker so they were designed to keep him as warm as poss but still let him comfort himself.

Thanks for linking to my blog,

Very cute mittens! I wanted you to know that I was inspired by your skinny scarf that I made a modified version with some materials that I had handy. I completely forgot to take a picture of it, tho. I gave it to my sis for Christmas and she loves it. I'll see if I can get her to email me a pic to share with you. It turned out great! Thanks for your ideas!
