I made these mittens for Mason last week and gave them to him on Saturday. He loved them and was toddling around carrying them (and tripping on them!) Jenna had asked me to make him a pair of red one's as she has a red hat and matching scarf for him. I decided to put them on a string as he is always pitching things from the stroller, or shopping cart when no one is looking. Last winter when I was there, we had to go to a restaurant they had been too, to pick up a boot he had slung off, and no one had noticed till later. Little dickens! LOL So Grammie decided to out smart him on the mittens and attach them to a string that threads through his coat and sleeves.
