Mitten Weather again!

These weren't planned, they were an excuse for me to use up the left over yarn from Dylan's cheeky monkey. This is an old pattern from patons, as a matter of fact I use to make these for my girls when they were little.
The best part of these mitts is the cuff, just long enough to keep the little wrists protected from the cold.

and now for something completely different...I had Nate over for a visit this weekend and he was starting to get bored, so instead of turning on the T.V. we made snowflakes to decorate the windows. He hasn't started kindergarten yet! but his Mommy has been working on small muscle activities such as, using the scissors... so he loved making these, here is a youtube link for the instructions
I know you'll want to make at least one!

Wow. Fantastic snowflake! I like the Bella mittens too. I've had the pattern for awhile - must move it up the queue.
