F.O.: Little Mittens

Back in November when the weather started to turn cold, my twins would complain about cold hands when we went out for a walk. I had just come off of an intense month and a half of knitting a sample for Brooklyn Tweed (yet to be revealed) and I was really behind with my hat/mitten knitting. Nolan and Hayden are now 3 but they still have little hands - I could knit them up some mittens in no time!
I found some yarn in my stash and I already had a pattern so I started right away.
Pattern: Mittens by Melinda Goodfellow Yarn: Cascade 220 in Navy and Lamb's Pride Worsted in White Needles: US 5 and US 6
I am pretty lucky because all of my boys love it when I knit something for them. It makes them feel special. The entire time I was knitting these the twins kept asking if I was done yet and wanted to try them on as soon as one came off the needles. I wish I had more time to knit a lot more things for them because they totally appreciate it. I have sweaters planned for all three of them for next fall. I have my fingers crossed that I can get them done - I should start now!!
