Mittens In May

This past winter, we had a bit of a problem with Loreli's mittens.  The cuffs were too short and snow kept creeping up her jacket sleeves while sledding & making snowmen.  I had promised her way back then that I would make her new mittens but....well, I just didn't.  So getting ahead of the game for next year, I cast on for some mittens in May!

Pattern: Classic Mittens

What an excellent pattern!  There are 5 size options and I can see myself referring to this pattern repeatedly as Loreli grows.

I nicknamed these "Scrappy Mittens" because they were made of almost all scraps I had laying around.  Loreli's were made of Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Sugar Plum and Caron Simply Soft in White and Heather Gray.  I love how these turned out!

More scraps, for mine I used Vanna's Choice Bright Pink and Black.  These feel a little on the scratchy side, but I think they'll be great on cold winter days.  I think I'll make the cuffs a tad longer for myself the next time I use this pattern though.
