I've always loved those old fashioned baby mittens that had a string to weave through the coat so I made some for the new baby girl on the way. I just need to block them. She won't be wearing these until Winter 2008-09 so still a long way's off. I also want to make some for me. Any other fans of these mittens on a string? I love all kinds of mittens. I even like the word mittens.
