finders keepers

I have a friend. She's tiny. One winter, while coveting a pair of convertible mitts, she complained that she couldn't find a pair of gloves that fit her tiny hands. Since it was around the time of her birthday I decided to knit her a pair. It took about a year because I put them down and forgot to pick them up again! I used the Broad Street Mittens pattern from knitty using yarn I got from a knitting swap. I've made these before, but because the yarn (trekking) I used was so thin, the size was perfect.

The best part is the thumb, which I took from Berroco Pele.

The saddest part is that a week after I gave them to her, she lost one.
