My grandmother, Joyce, knitted some mitten puppets for her great-granddaughter, Nora, for Christmas 2011. As often happens with presents not made in Chinese plastic molds, they got a little passed over on Christmas morning, but we’ve found them and the weather has finally gotten cold enough to necessitate insulating hand gear, so we put them on her yesterday. It turns out to be extremely difficult to actually get her thumb and pinky into their requisite holes, but she does enjoy the faces on them.
Thank you very much to my grandmother, Joyce, of crafts and off-roading fame, for these wonderful mittens. The photos that follow are for you…
…and for any catalog modeling scouts that may stop by.
Hands up! This is a robbery!
