I cast off the second mini mitt yesterday. My model was not very keen on standing still for long enough to show them off, but he was happy to subject them to an extensive series of mud-based tests. Which they passed. Phew.
PS: Details of the mitts on Ravelry here. Also- as you can see in the final photo -little R is wearing the striped hat that I made for S a couple of years ago: you can read about it here.
