Nannio's Mitts

In this picture, my daughter looks different to me. Sometimes, I think certain photos seem to flash forward to a glimpse of the future of a child. She looks older than her 5.84 years! I love that expression : )

So, Nannio made a scarf and I made the matching mitts. I didn't like this yarn much, either. It's got too many sparkly bits in it. But the mitts are cute. I'd like to make some more of theses....

Here's them on my second daughter...

And of course, here's what they look like on the puggy : ) Sorry, you know I can't resist!

Yarn: Bulky Italian yarn
Gauge: 6 sts/2"
Needles: size 11
Pattern: Cast on 20 sts and work in the round in k1p1 rubbing for 17 rows. Change to stockinette stitch and work 12 rows in the round. Work back and forth for 6 rows to allow for a thumb opening. Rejoin to work in the round for 5 more rows- bind off. Weave in loose ends.

These work up very fast, as you might imagine. Hopefully they will help Nannio beat the chill this fall.

You really made me laugh! Fonzie REALLY wears them the best. I can only hope to do them justice after seeing his high standard. The girls lovely as always looked very cute. Thanks for the mitts. I had them on but it is still a bit too early to wear them, but am eager for the colder weather. The ensemble looks faBUlous!!!!!!
