Being a novice knitter myself, I have a deep appreciation for the time and effort that goes into creating a pair of children’s mittens–a project I’ve yet to successfully complete. Trouble is, even if I did manage to finish a pair, my daughter would complain of impending frostbite before she’d finished packing a single snowball. Yarn by itself is no match for wet snow.
But the M’uppet Mittens by Zooni found at My Princess Closet have solved that problem quite nicely. These hand-knitted and crocheted deep purple mittens adorned with lavender posies are lined in cozy fleece. I love how they combine gorgeous handiwork with kid-friendly functionality and a design that’s feminine without being over-the-top girly.
Because frankly, mittens that are too dainty for packing snowballs aren’t much use around here. -Julie
