We've been learning our body parts in Spanish lately. Sadie's favorites are her "manos", or hands. I already mentioned these mitts in a previous blog post, but yesterday I realized just how much use they've been getting. She puts them on every time she goes out and sings a little song to herself about keeping her manos warm. I knew they would be nice to have and let's face it, I was looking for something quick and easy to knit, but they really are so functional. They hug tight around the wrist and have a super long cuff, plus they allow those little fingers and thumbs to do what they do best. I used the "Clarence" pattern, from Kellbourne Wollens. It was a gift from a dear friend, and I have used so many of the patterns from it. I knit them in the 12-24 mo size because I wanted them to be snug, but I'm super excited they come all the way up to size 6yr.
How are you keeping your manos warm this winter?
