I stumbled upon this blog a couple weeks ago while hunting around for ideas for Christmas gifts and immediately knew that I had to give Leslie's tutorial for the mitts a try as a stocking stuffer for my husband. Now if you know me, you know that knitting is not my favorite hobby. Give me a crochet hook or sewing needle any day. But in starting and completing this project over the weekend I may just be converted to enjoying knitting. That and both of the boys are quite enamored with them and have been asking nonstop for a set of their own. With homeschooling them, doing them in secret will be a bit of a challenge. This pattern is pretty quick to do though even for a non-knitter such as myself and I found that I actually enjoyed doing it. So a big thank you to Leslie for sharing her talents and the pattern.
