It might be because I'm still spending time in the picture book section of the library, but red mittens always kind of remind me of Jan Brett. And red hats remind me of Snow Day. These are the same pattern as the finger-less mitts for El. Only I might have done a better job of following the directions. They are approximately big kid sized in some red Cascade 220 Superwash that I had in the old stash. They were really fun to knit and I like how they came out. They could use a bath to smooth everything out, but....I like them. They are not destined to anyone in particular - so when a good charity opportunity comes up, they will be in the mail.
