Pocket Mittens

Spent Saturday making these mittens for my Eldest Granddaughter's birthday. We stand outside in the cold mornings waiting for the bus. Thus the mittens. But these have a twist. There is a little pocket on the right palm for her bus fare. Despite the fact the change could fall out, I think these will work, as she carries her lunch box in her right hand which will provide the pressure necessary to keep the change in the pocket until the bus comes. Her Tia is making her a lanyard for her bus card. The pocket was easy to make and details on my Ravelry page.

Going off to knit with an "old" knitting friend, G, from my past, today. Not sure if DL will join us or not. We're going to yet another local bookstore as it's closer to G's house. And Barnes and Noble has Starbucks coffee which I'm afraid has become my drug of choice. It's still cold, about 39 degrees this morning. I'm glad I won't be out walking in it till around noon.

I spent the entire day knitting, listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. TV just isn't interesting and my DVR is filling up with all my usual shows. Oh well, I'll get around to them eventually!


  1. Nice mittens. Can you perhaps crochet a little loop and sew a button to keep the pocket closed or would that be too fidgity for a child?

  2. Testing for you, Lizzie. Will let you know the results.


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
