mitts for my boys

i just love these mitts. but i love how much the guys love my knitty goodness even more. it makes me happy that they love the things i have been making and that they each have a wish list. now to just sleep less and knit faster to keep up with their demands.

these mitts were made with cascade 220 and fleece artist mohair (combining these two yarns....a good choice!!!!), and i just used the basic briggs & little mitten pattern for both. Rob's were made with a 4mm needle and the little guys were made with a 3.25mm.

when i initially made the first pair, my little man saw them and tried them on (10 sizes to big of course) he said "oh these are cosy" and he immediately requested a pair for himself. now the two men in my life each have a pair to keep them nice and toasty warm.
i've been eyeballing the burgundy mohair by fleece artist with a plan to mix it with the pink cascade to give the same mitt for us girls!!!! but i have some other stuff in the work first.

hope you had a great weekend, thanks for stopping by
