in progress :: Child’s Chevron Mittens, originally uploaded by earthchick.
When the boys saw my Chevron Love Mittens, they each wanted a pair, too. I will admit that putting the time into colorwork mittens for growing boys seems a bit inefficient – if I’m lucky, the mittens will last a whole season before they’re outgrown (or lost!). Nevermind that, now that it’s March, they will only get a little time to wear them before this season is up (I am adding some grow room in hopes that they will still fit next winter).
First up, a pair in red-white-and-blue for Tiny Dancer. I’ve already finished the first mitten and hope to get this one finished up quickly. Little Buddha has all sorts of plans for his pair that basically involve my designing a whole new, non-Chevron pattern. We’ll see….
