All I've got to say about this print is that if beavers would actually be amenable to it, I'm pretty sure
they'd actually love a pair of mittens. But somehow, I don't see that actually happening any time soon.
As you might have noticed, I have made it back from my annual trip up to Canada, which involved five-pin bowling, a ridiculous fluffy drink served in a pineapple and not nearly as much snow as you might think. And seeing as my trip up there was actually something of a belated Christmas gathering, that also means that I came back with some very nice presents which I love very, very much. In particular, I received a pair of knitted raccoon mittens, which I love with a love that is as fierce as the vengeance of a slighted Greek god. These. Things. Are. AWESOME.
And since I figure I can't be the only person who loves themselves a pair of yarn animal mittens, I figured that today I'd share some other equally awesome animal mittens with you. Because if nothing else, if you lose one of these mittens, chances are you'll be able to find it at the Lost & Found way easier than if you lose an Isotoner glove.
First up is this sweet pair of stripey teddy bear mittens, which I think is just freakin' adorable. I particularly like the fact that the ears are set up so that they rest on your fingertips, so you can waggle them to your heart's content.
Of course, for those of you who prefer fingerless mittens, there is this pair of crocheted critter mitts. Not sure what kind of critter they're supposed to be, but I think they look a bit like puppy dogs. I think it's the tongue.
This shop actually has so many different animal mittens that I honestly couldn't pick one set that I felt was best, so I figured I'd just post this picture to give you a taste of the variety and let you decide which pair is The Best.
And now, to wrap things up, here's a pair of irrepressibly cheerful bunny mittens:
Admit it: It's really hard not to smile when you see these things. Particularly since they're already smiling back at you and all.
And on that note, see you Friday!
