A few months ago I knitted these rabbit mittens. It is my nephew's first birthday this December so wanted a quick pattern to make a present for him so decided to knit him some dinosaur mittens. I have already made him a Postman Pat jumper for Christmas (will blog it soon). I still have a lot of Christmas presents still to make so wanted a quick pattern. I would recommend the Novelty Mittens Book (I got mine from Ebay), one pair took me one full Sunday so they're easy to knit up.
I am currently in the process of making a Jean Greenhowe pair of Carol Singers as a present for my mum for Christmas. My jumper wool finally arrived so after these I am casting on a Spiderman jumper! Very excited for that one!
