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.
Sparkly diamond buttons at the hand end of the mitts
And fun fur at the cuff:
She really loved them.
