When I finished my Maine Morning Mitts, my 6 year old son said he would like some. This is the person living in my house most likely to actually wear/use something knitted for him, so I did it. The Boku was a little too scratchy for him, so I used some handspun superwash that he thought was an acceptable combination of colors.
Mitts for Christopher & he wants a hat…
He has actually been wearing the mitts!
Yesterday it was COLD here (remember, I’m in WV, so this is a relative thing, but we went out to the movies and I couldn’t warm up…) so I was wearing my earflap hat around in the house and he said he would like one of those, too. I would let him have mine, but it is Noro Kureyon and also too scratchy for him. So I got out the remains of the yarn I’d made him mitts out of and reskeined it and partially over-dyed it with red food coloring.
