Some mitts for my girl

>> Thursday, January 28, 2010

Well after the flurry of mitt knitting last May my daughter requested some for her. So what was I to do but cast on.

They have been approved for all sorts of activities like bike riding
Potion making
And some unapproved activities like painting at a friends house :)
And of course after I knit up one pair she requested another and another and another. I am expecting to have a rainbow of colors knit up very soon for her.

Here is the link. It is a free pattern and incredibly fast and easy to knit. I used Cascade 220 superwash, a superb fiber for children knits. Both pairs have been washed and dried (in the dryer) many times and are holding up beautifully.
P.S. The yarn I used for my newsboy cap was Blue Sky Alpacas 100% alpaca sportweight. Luscious yarn.

I love Cascade for almost everything (who am I kidding--everything!). Those mitts are great!

am totally amused by the potion making. In quite the cup, too....

Don't be offended, but I love that she got paint on one of them. I mean, she wore them when she was with friends, while she was having fun with friends... that means she loves them! I haven't used Cascade 220 yet but I do know it comes in about 14 bazillion colors, and that is surely enticing.

Beautiful mitts! I love Cascade for my kids' knits. I also LOVE the entire ensemble she is wearing!

Those are so cute! I would make some for my boys if I thought they would wear them. Maybe I'll make some for my mom instead. ;)
