These were just the antidote I needed to all the brown and grey.

I took these pictures weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to blogging. I blame my husband being out of town for a week. And Ravelry.

But while I haven't been blogging, I *have* been knitting.

Caitie has been asking me for some fingerless gloves. (Actually, what she has been doing is wearing *my* fingerless gloves and folding them back so they're not too long). So I whipped up this pattern.

Of course after I did that, Sean wanted some too, and after that, Molly had to have some pink ones. I was working on the last pink one at a party and 4 people asked me if they could buy them from me.

I'm working on writing up the pattern. They're sized for toddlers to pre-teens and super easy to make. I've got pictures done so now I just need time uninterrupted to put the pattern together.

The problem is, they still need a name. I've got a few ideas, but I don't like any of them. Anyone got any good ideas? I'll give a free copy of the pattern or pair of them to anyone who comes up with a name I decide to use. I would really like a name brand kind of name (not just, you know, Mitts, or Kid's fingerless gloves). I love Sheepy Pants for that reason, but I also don't want to call them Sheepy Mitts, because that could get old really soon.

If you have any suggestions, email me!


  1. Since they are for kids, you could call them Munchkin Mitts, but then the older kids may not like it! :D I think they are really cute Mandie. Could new knitters (like myself) make these easily? I have your sheepy pants pattern but haven't started it yet. I'm waiting for my yarn to arrive!

  2. Cool! Are you going to make the pattern for big kid (a.k.a. grownup) sizes too? I'd love to have a pair for myself. No name suggestions for you though. I stink at coming up with names for stuff. :-)
