Magic mittens and St Gertrude!
I’m having a very strong sense of déjà vu…
But at least this post has no pesky crocodiles!
First of all, happy St Gertrude’s! As I mentioned last year, this is the day we celebrate our cats birthdays. Though with the ‘Beast from the East 2.0’ our festive spirits have been somewhat dampened as the cats are all in a huge sulk as they have the snow!
Onto the magic mittens, as I mentioned last time I made them, my friends little one has eczema and, after her eczema developed an infection from scratching during the night whilst her previous magic mittens where in the wash…
Well, I couldn’t have that!
Pattern used was once again, the amazing free pattern The World’s Simplest Mittens by tincanknits, these are knit in the next size so there’s growing room. And when they’re in the wash…
A second pair!
The patterns where picked by my friends little one, anything to help her wear them!
