I am so glad I found these I am going to a baby shower in a couple weeks and I can whip up a couple of these in no time!!

BTW- I love your picture on why your skeins are in knots; mine are too from 4 cats, plus one of them is a klepto and loves to steal and hide my needles from me!

These are perfect! I'm due 10/13/2010 and I know it's going to get cold quickly after that here in Charleston. These are quick enough looking that I think I'll be able to make a few pairs before he gets here!

Hi Amy!

I'm planning to make a pair of these mitts plus the Newborn Froggie Hat for a friend who's expecting. Was one skein of green enough to make the hat and a pair of mitts?

Julie said...

Oooh! I want to make some of these for my nephew-to-be! My babies always scratched their faces so bad, and these will be wonderful! Thanks for the pattern!

Amy said...

Jezriyah-One skein of KP Shine Sport was more than enough for the hat and the mitts. I love one skein projects!

I'm counting the stitches and think I'm missing something. I have 24 stitches, but when I do k4,M1 I end up with 28. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you, Holly
