I met up with a fellow new mum the other day who showed me the mittens she knitted for her little girl including a crocheted string to keep them safely inside her coat. They are so cute and are even lined with fabric from an old baby-grow to keep little fingers extra snugly. I commented that you don’t see mittens on string much these days, probably because of all the health and safety scares. Personally I’d like to see more mittens on string.
And a quick mention to any of you Knitting Magazine readers; I have submitted my article and shall be back on the back page of February issue. It'll be good to be back!
