Penguin Mitts

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!
