Lina MittsOne of my little niece's had a birthday last week.
This is the little niece that has an abundance of toys to play with and spends as much time as she's allowed out on the farm with her Dada anyway. So what do you give for a present?
A knitted hat and mitt set of course!
Done in a nice bright red - easy to spot in the paddocks if she decides to go wander off to meet Dada without telling Mum first!
She was very excited when she opened them and nicely posed for photos.
And, if you want to make your own pair of mitts, I've put the pattern up for free here on Ravelry. (The hat pattern is not my own, but it's free through Ravelry too - Lina.)
