Nora with Mitten PuppetsMy 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.

    A friend’s 15-year old son is 2m 09cm: passionate about basketball, hopefully he might get the chance training with the national team soon…plays in his Bilbao Instituto team at the moment, and the also with the Pais Vasco team.
    The question that worries his parents is, how tall will he be when he stops growing?

    Thank you for the pictures of Nora and the mittens.  I hoped she was the right age to enjoy them.  She is a charming!!

    Those are just too cute!  Our kids would have loved them when they were younger. 🙂

  • Those are adorable, you think grandma Joyce could knit me some, too? hehe
