Riley Mitts 

Last summer, while taking Riley to visit an Alpaca farm during our vacation in Michigan, she was enamored with some purple fingerless mitts that had fun fur at the cuffs.  I told her that I would make her a pair that were the right size (the next morning she did ask me if they were finished yet!).  So, anticipating a visit last weekend with Riley and family, I made most of these mitts on our drive to Michigan (Koigu yarn), and finished them up with her looking on.  The mitts alone were exciting enough for her, but I told her that there were 2 surprises, which I introduced one at a time.

She really loved them.
