little baby mittens, part two
These are for Sophie's new baby half-sister... they turned out much smaller than the first ones I made. Instead of worsted-weight wool I used a little ball of leftover yarn from the hat I knitted for Sophie while I was pregnant with her, I forget exactly what it was, but it's very fine merino-blend. I didn't change the pattern at all (here is the one I used for both pairs) and so these ones, I think, will actually fit a tiny newborn.
Notice that one is smaller than the other, that's because I was worried about running out of yarn and must have knitted the second one much tighter! Oh well, I think they will both fit. Baby things are just too much fun to knit.
