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?

  1. Oh, they are so cute! Sadie looks so pleased with them. I'm surprised she keeps them on so well. They do look nice and snug though. I think I might need to make some for Louisa with some leftover yarn from her Christmas hat.
