she kNiTs MiTTs!!

new peace fleece mittens for esme' knit from the playground mittens pattern. the pattern was fast and simple and esme' loves them. she does not, however, love the little crochet chain i made to thread through her sleeves and attach to each mitten. but mama would like both hand knit mittens to come home with her each day. *sigh* maybe i will compromise. maybe i will give her the benefit of the doubt and trust her to take care of them. maybe she will rarely take them off since her little fingers can peek out anytime she needs them. and if she does happen to lose one or both i suppose it will not be the end of the world.

it was a fast and simple project after all...

How cute! My kids will also be getting crochet chains to thread through their coats on their holiday mittens. I've seen what has happened to mittens and gloves past that have not been chained down. We've got many a lonely glove in our sock drawers! (I will say none of them were hand made. BUT, the one pair I want to make for my 2nd daughter are Scandinavian squirrel pattern, her favorite critter, and I'm not chancing her losing one of those!)
