This was made for a friend at the lab whose wife is expecting any day now. They are having a boy and I thought it these two colors went together well and were masculine enough for this manly man about to be born but would also work well for a girl. I thought about putting a pom on the top but ended up deciding that might make it look too girlie. Like I said previously, I am going to try hard to work on more inventive boy items 🙂 This was also my first set of mittens (the thumbless version) to make and was pleased with how they turned out. I had the idea to take a few pictures with the items on the pine tree from the “Warmth Tree” that Mayfair always does this time of year to collect items for the Infant Crisis Center.
