As soon as I found the Mini Motif Baby Mittens Pattern I knew that I wanted to knit a penguin for my future child. I finally had the opportunity to complete this project when I was 7 months pregnant. Why did it take me so long? Well I just didn't have the yarn in my stash to make black and white penguins. (And they HAD to be black and white!)
Is it odd that all of the babies I knit these mitts for were born in October? I made a monkey set for some good friends and a robot set for my cousin's baby, both born last October, and now my little one is due this October!
These Mitts were knit on size 5 dpn's with KnitPicks Shine Sport yarn in Black (8 g, 18 yards) and White (17 g, 38 yards). Finished Measurements: 5" Tall, 2.75" Wide. the desired measurements were 4.5 tall x 3 wide... we'll see how these fit my baby!
