Finally, two late gifts checked off the list. These mitts are so quick to make I can see why Erin decided to make seven pairs. Both the yarns were in my stash and quite luxurious — just the thing for tween-age gifts. Now I just need to cross my fingers and hope they like them.

    Cute! I don’t have a knitting project at the moment and this makes me think I need one.

    They will love them! Malabrigo – so soft, perfect choice. The colors are great and I think it was a wise decision to leave off the picot, they look more slouchy-teenage-cool.

    I saw these originally on Erin’s blog and made 4 pairs as gifts for Christmas. The teachers love them. Hope your receipents love them as well.
