These are my first mittens! They are a lot smaller than they look, for a first grader’s itty bitty hands.
I am also making a matching scarf. This is also my first scarf.
They will be given to a grade school child (I am sure a girl because of the bright pink!) at one of the two schools our church knitting and crocheting group is making mittens and scarves for disadvantaged children.
This project is rewarding. Another blogger told me that to receive something someone put time and effort into was a huge gift emotionally. Next up are some boys’ mittens in an appropriate boy color.
I am leaving the little strings for my teacher to make sure I finished properly and that these mittens don’t unravel away….

They are lovely!!! Good looking mittens!
You’ve come a long way since starting to knit.
You don’t know how many times I rip it out and start over 🙂
They will make some little girl very happy. 🙂
What lovely and wonderful gift! 🙂
