Since Addie wants several pairs of mittens, I was looking at patterns and found these Aurora Unicorn Mittens on Ravelry. They don’t look hard to make and it’s DK weight yarn so they should go quickly. We’re going to look for yarn at JoAnn’s and Hobby Lobby today and if I don’t find any, I have time to order it, get it and get the mittens made while I’m here. I was thinking I might can find a couple of solids that go with the striped yarn, make two pairs of mittens – maybe a pink pair and a red pair, depending on the variegated/striped yarn I find and then I can make a hat or two using the leftover yarn.
I found the Cupcakes Knit Cap so that’s the pattern I’ll use for the hats. Nicole has her pom pom maker so she can do those. I do not like making pom poms!
Hopefully we’ll find yarn in Joplin and I’ll be able to get started on these and get them done! Mitten and hat weather is almost here in MO.
